Hamas Denounces EU Talks with Israel on Exchanging Palestinian Data

Af.M | DOP -

The Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas expressed Thursday, 22 November 2022 its condemnation of the current negotiations between the European Commission and the Israeli Occupation to reach an agreement on exchanging personal data about the Palestinian citizens living in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

In a statement, Hamas called on the European Commission to respect the Palestinian people’s right to sovereignty and independence, and stop such talks with the Israeli Occupation.

The Movement described such a European step as a “dangerous precedent” and a “flagrant violation of international law.”

Hamas affirmed that such a step would confer legitimacy on the Israeli Occupation at the expense of the Palestinian people’s security and national rights, calling on the European Union to abide by its conventional policy of rejecting Israel’s Occupation of the Palestinian Territories.
