Hamas’s accusation that Italy is “part of the aggression against us” is false, Deputy Premier and Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said Tuesday.
Hamas’s accusation about Italy ‘attacking’ the Palestinians “is a blatant falsehood,” Tajani said at a press conference in Turin.
“Instead, it seems to me that we are helping the Palestinian people given the material that arrived in Egypt yesterday and today.
“We are insisting with Israel that the Palestinian people be spared.
“We are against Hamas because it is a terrorist and criminal organisation.
“We defend the right of the Palestinian people to have a state but we will never say that we are friends of Hamas.
“Condemning Hamas terrorism means telling the truth.”
