Haley: Hamas Cause of Deadly Gaza Violence, Not US Embassy Move
Wednesday, 16 May 2018 11:07 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Tuesday Israel used "restraint" in response to deadly clashes with Palestinians at the Gaza border and blamed Gaza's ruling Hamas militant group for the violence.

"In recent days, Hamas terrorists, backed by Iran, have incited attacks against Israeli security forces and infrastructure," Haley said at a U.N. Security Council emergency meeting on the Gaza situation.

Haley dismissed assertions the violence stemmed from Monday's opening of the U.S. embassy in Jerusalem.

"It does not undermine the prospects for peace in any way. And yet, for some, this is supposedly a cause for violence. But let™s remember that the Hamas terrorist organization has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy."

Haley added the embassy "reflects the will of the American people" and "our sovereign right to decide the location of our embassy, a right that everyone in this room claims for their own country."
