Some ِArab countries help Israeli illegal expansionism

Hamas criticized on Friday Bahrain for opening its airspace to flights between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.

"The help of some countries to the UAE in implementing its normalization agreement with Tel Aviv, supports the [Israeli] occupation to implement its expansionist policy in the region at the expense of the Arab rights," said Hamas spokesman Hazem Qasim.

Qasim demanded countries prevent the UAE from implementing the normalization deal with Israel as such a policy "encourages the [Israeli] occupation to commit more crimes" against the Palestinian people.
