South Africa supports Hamas, says Israel

‘South Africa is the legal arm of Hamas,’ says Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs charged that the government of South Africa continues to represent the interests of the terrorist organization Hamas and tries to deny Israel the basic right to defend itself and its citizens.

“South Africa’s legally and factually unfounded reference proves once again that it is the legal arm of the terrorist organization Hamas,” said the ministry.

“Israel is bound by international law, including allowing the transfer of humanitarian aid and preventing harm to innocents while the Hamas terrorists are hiding behind the civilian population in the Gaza Strip and are holding 134 hostages,” it added.
