Hamas condemns US 'terrorist' remarks

World Bulletin / News Desk

Hamas has slammed a speech by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry where he said America was "trying to stop terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hizballah from getting the financing and the weapons that they seek."

In a Thursday statement by Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri, Kerry's remarks – which included support for "Israel’s right to defend itself and its citizens" – were described as “attacks against humanity and show that the U.S. government is a party to the attacks against Palestinian people."

Kerry's remarks were delivered in a speech to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington.

On Sep. 8 the U.S. State Department announced that several high-ranking Hamas members had been added to its wanted list, including Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades top commander Muhammed Deif, and Hamas Political Bureau member Rawhi Mushtaha.
