Hamas Does Not Represent Palestinian People: Kamala Harris
WASHINGTON, DC (ANI) – Voicing concern for the civilian population of Palestine, Vice President Kamala Harris on October 19 expressed her support for their freedom and self-determination and said that Hamas does not represent the rights of Palestinians.
The Vice President posted, “Israelis and Palestinians must have equal measures of security and prosperity. I support the right of the Palestinian people to dignity, freedom, and self-determination. Hamas does not represent these aspirations.”
Earlier on October 12, Harris said the US was looking at “extreme acts of terrorism” that must be condemned in no uncertain terms, stressing that there was no justification for such acts of terror.
“I’m completely outraged by what has taken place. We are looking at extreme acts of terrorism that must be condemned in no uncertain terms. There is absolutely no justification for terrorism,” Harris said.
Further, weighing in on the decades-old conflict in West Asia, Harris said she and President Biden take their commitment to Israel very seriously.
Meanwhile, the Israel Defense Forces has strongly refuted claims made by the Palestinian side that Israel was behind the bomb explosion at the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza. The IDF also poked holes in the claims made by Hamas that several people had been killed in the explosion.
