Press Statement

Fawzi Barhoum, spokesman for the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas”, stated the following:

The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, strongly condemns the allegations made by UNRWA regarding the “existence of a tunnel under a school in the middle of the Gaza Strip” which will in turn be exploited by the Israeli occupation to justify its crimes and encourage it to target unarmed civilians.

Hamas and all other resistance factions make it clear, that no resistance activities take place in the location mentioned by the UNRWA. Our resistance policy completely respects UNRWA institutions and public institutions; meaning, we and other factions carry on with resistance activities far from residential areas and institutions.
