EU Consuls General in Region Criticize Hamas

An internal report evaluating the situation in Gaza, written by the European Union Consuls General in both Jerusalem and Ramallah, respectively, has expressed a sharp criticism of Hamas, according to a report in Ha'artez.

The report states that "If Hamas would completely renounce its use of violence to achieve its objectives, it would have a revolutionary impact on the entire situation in Gaza, which would enable them to promote the very necessary process of a reconciliation with Fatah (PLO)." 

On the other hand, the report stressed that Israel "carries the primary responsibility for the economic and humanitarian situation in Gaza."
