Hamas: Police assaults in Sheikh Jarrah reflect Israel’s barbarism

The Hamas Movement has denounced the scenes of assaults and intimidation which the Jerusalemite residents of Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood experienced last night at the hands of Israeli police forces and settlers.

In press remarks on Tuesday, Hamas spokesman Abdul-Latif al-Qanu described what happened last night in Sheikh Jarrah as a reflection of the Israeli occupation’s barbarism and aggressive practices.

Spokesman Qanu affirmed that Israel’s ongoing aggressive practices against the Sheikh Jarrah residents and its attempts to expel them from their homes “entail escalating the confrontation with the occupation and strengthening the steadfastness of the Jerusalemites there in order to foil its plans.”

Last night, Israeli police forces assaulted local residents and activists in Sheikh Jarrah, arrested many of them and raided homes.
