Head of Hamas political bureau Ismail Haniyeh has received a phone call from the Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process. Tor Wennesland.

In the phone call, the Hamas chief has discussed the latest political developments with his counterpart and the arrests by the Israeli occupation against Palestinians.

They also discussed Israeli arrests and settlements in the West Bank.

Haniyeh emphasized the necessity for the Israeli occupation to stop the Israeli violations against the Palestinian people and halt Israeli settlement projects and breakings into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

He confirmed that the Israeli measures are meant to suffocate the Palestinian people and worsen the political and humanitarian conditions in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

The Hamas chief added: “We are facing calculated Israeli policy adopted by the Israeli occupation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip,” highlighting that the Israeli strategy tightens the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip.

The top Hamas official called on the UN coordinator to work towards halting the Israeli measures and crimes against the Palestinian people.

He also urged the United Nations to burden its responsibility towards easing the Israeli blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip.

Haniyeh explained to Wennesland that the threats made by Israeli leaders, especially former war minister Benjamin Gantz, against the Palestinian people are unacceptable, calling on the UN to stop Israeli aggressive policies against the Palestinian people.
