Hamas also called for “severing all ties” with Israel and supporting the struggle of the Palestinian people until they achieve their legitimate national rights, most notably the establishment of a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
On Saturday, the 37th African Union Summit was held in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa where they condemned Israel’s “brutal war and the use of excessive force against 2.2 million defenceless civilians in the Gaza Strip.”
The statement called on Tel Aviv to “comply with the decisions of the International Court of Justice and prevent the genocide in Gaza, as well as respond to international calls for a permanent ceasefire in the Strip,”
It also condemned Israel’s use of the policy of collective punishment against civilians in Gaza and attempts to forcefully transfer them to the Sinai Peninsula.
The statement called for “lifting the unjust siege imposed on Gaza and conducting an independent international investigation into Israel’s use of internationally banned weapons in its war in the Strip.
