“A The illusion that Biden is preaching in favor of a State of Palestine (…) does not deceive our people”, reacted Izzat al-Richiq, member of the political cabinet of the Islamist group, quoted by the France Presse agency.
On Friday, White House spokesman John Kirby stated that Joe Biden “continues to believe in the prospect and possibility” of a Palestinian state, but “recognizes that it will take a lot of work to get there.”
Israel’s main ally and supporter, the United States called on the country to limit the number of civilian victims and reiterated its support for the creation of a Palestinian state, rejected by the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“[O Presidente americano] is a full partner in the genocidal war and our people do not expect anything good from him”, added the Hamas official, criticizing “those who consider themselves the official spokesmen of the Palestinian people and who want to decide for the Palestinian people what kind of country suits them”.
The war between Israel and Hamas was triggered by an attack by the Palestinian Islamist movement on Israeli soil, on October 7, which caused the death of around 1,140 people, most of them civilians, according to an AFP count based on official Israeli data. . Around 250 people were kidnapped and taken to Gaza.
In retaliation for the attack, Israel promised to “annihilate” Hamas and is bombing the Gaza Strip and carrying out operations in the region. According to a new report from the Hamas Ministry of Health, released on Saturday, 24,927 people (the vast majority of them women, children and teenagers) were killed and 62,108 were injured in Israeli operations.
