Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, slammed the consensus government for cutting off the payments allocated for 1,297 poor families in Gaza Strip. Hamas’s spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri opined, in a statement on Monday, that this decision comes in line with the discrimination policy against the people of the Gaza Strip.
It indicates the government’s involvement in Gaza Siege, he said. Hamas called on the Palestinian government to halt such decisions which have become a constant policy. The government headed by Rami al-Hamdallah on Sunday blocked the Ministry of Social Affairs’ payments allocated for 1,297 poor families in the Gaza Strip without informing the ministry branch in Gaza.
