The Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas rejected the nomination of Israel for the presidency of the UN General Assembly Sixth Law Committee.

In a press release on Monday, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri slammed the nomination as shameful and disrespectful to UN rules and bylaws.

“This nomination encourages the occupation to continue its terrorist policies against the Palestinian people,” he stated, calling on the United Nations to retract the catastrophic nomination.

According to protocol, the UN Committee’s presidency is taken by alternation among groups, and this year is the turn of the group of Western Europe (WEOG) which is nominating Israel.
