The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas said that detention campaigns carried out by Israeli occupation forces against Islamic Bloc activists aimed at “targeting the will of Palestinian youth, who are at the core of the upcoming elections.”
In a press release, Hamas added that these campaigns intended to affect the Palestinian election results by targeting effective and influential figures in various crucial fields and sectors.
“We stress that achieving national consensus and partnership is a national priority,” Hamas continued.
Hamas reiterated that it will continue its efforts to rearrange the Palestinian national home on the basis of achieving partnership, ending division and setting up a comprehensive, national programme to face off the Israeli occupation and settlement activities.
The Islamic Movement called on all free people of the world and parliaments to impose sanctions on the Israeli occupation, which has been targeting the Palestinian democracy for years.
“The detention campaigns come as part of a policy adopted by the Israeli occupation since 2006 to undermine the Palestinian political system and exclude any influential Palestinian party that gained legitimacy through the ballot boxes,” Hamas concluded.
