Hamas statement on US labelling of West Bank's settlement products as Israeli

Hamas vehemently deplores the executive decision announced by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about labelling the goods made in Israeli settlements built on the 1967 occupied Palestinian territories in the West Bank as “Made in Israel”.

Hamas considers, on a statement released today, this move a serious aggression against our Palestinian people and a stark violation of the International Law as it gives the Israeli occupation the green light to annex the remaining of the Palestinian territories.

"We are deeply concerned about this decision that deems Gaza and the West Bank as politically and administratively separate regions; this confirms the role of this extremist administration in deepening the intra-Palestinian division to advance the Israeli expansionist agenda."

"These dangerous decisions taken by the US administration before leaving office reflects its extremism and desire to impose irreversible realities on the ground," Hamas added. 

Therefore, Hamas stresses that any decisions taken by any side whatsoever will not break our people’s will and struggle for their inalienable rights to freedom, independence, and return.

It also calls on the newly-elected administration to reverse all arbitrary decisions taken by the Trump administration in favour of the Israeli occupation and its expansionist project, which violates international law and eradicates any prospect of fair and comprehensive solution to the conflict.
