Hamas spokesperson Hazam Qassem said on Saturday that the American company Amazon announcement to provide free services for Israeli settlers is a flagrant violation for the International laws and decisions.

In a statement, Qassem said that Amazon company's decision violated the United Nations resolutions that criminalize settlement and the companies deal with it, as the High Commission for Human Rights published a blacklist of companies dealing with settlements.

Amazon began in November to provide free shipping service to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank while Palestinians living in their towns and villages near the illegal settlements have to pay fees if they put their address as Palestine instead of Israel.
