GAZA, (PIC)-- The Hamas Movement condemned the latest remarks made by UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon on Israel's military escalation against the besieged Gaza as a "flagrant bias" in favor of the occupation and a violation of the UN resolutions.
"We strongly denounce the unbalanced position that was voiced today by the UN secretary-general before the Security Council regarding the Zionist aggression on the Gaza Strip," Hamas stated in a press release on Monday.
"The position of Ki-moon reflects his full bias in favor of the occupation and demonstrates a double standard in holding the victim responsible while the executioner is not blamed for starting its dangerous aggression and its criminal bombing of unarmed, peaceful population," Hamas highlighted.
"This position is against the charters and the principles on which the UN was established and which confirm that the nations under occupation have the right to defend themselves," it added.
Hamas called upon Ki-moon to reconsider his position which draws an unjust parallel between a military occupation entity and a suppressed occupied people, and to show positions in defense of the Palestinian people who are exposed to systematic Zionist killing and ethnic cleansing.
