The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, condemns the decision of the Attorney General of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, Ahmed Barak, to block a number of Palestinian news agency sites as demanded by Mahmoud Abbas.

The Movement’s spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, in a press statement Thursday, regarded the decision as a direct violation of freedom of opinion and expression and one which reflects the dictatorial agenda of Abbas and his authority in dealing with the Palestinian people and the various components of our society

Barhoum called on the Palestinian people to confront this immoral approach and to thwart Abbas’s plans aiming to subdue rights of free expression.

He also called on the human rights and trade union organizations to denounce the actions of Abbas and his authority which suppress the freedom of expression and the destruction of Palestinian society.
