Hamas Islamic Resistance

Statement on repeated attacks on Palestinian parliament's speaker

27 June, 20

We condemn the repeated assaults on the home of Palestinian Legislative Council’s Speaker Aziz Dweik by some outlaws in the West Bank city of Hebron.

We call on the Palestinian Authority and its security forces to put the perpetrators on trial, given that their identities have been identified after Dweik provided the police with CCTV footage of the attacks.

We urge Hebron’s residents and dignitaries to assume their role and protect the icons of the Palestinian people from attacks by some outlaws, who are targeting Palestinian unity and figures, as Dweik is a renowned national figure and academic, who was also banished and imprisoned by the Israeli occupation.

Hamas holds the Palestinian Authority and its security forces fully responsible for Dweik’s life and wellbeing, calling for taking the necessary measures to protect such prominent figure for whom the Palestinian Law guarantees security and protection.
