Hamas lauds Latin American officials’ stances against West Bank annexation

07 July, 20

Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem has hailed Latin American officials for signing a petition calling on the international community to impose sanctions on the Israeli occupation as it systematically perpetrates violations of the international law.

In a press release, Qasem said that this international position, expressed by more than 300 political and cultural figures and parliamentarians as well as former presidents and foreign ministers endorsed the Palestinians’ right to resist the Israeli apartheid regime.

The Hamas spokesperson urged all concerned countries and international organisations to take similar international stances and turn them into practical steps to deter the Israeli occupation from going ahead with its plan to annex the occupied West Bank.

Qasem also called for prosecuting Israeli occupation leaders in international courts for their ongoing involvement in crimes against Palestinians and grave violations of international law.
