Hamas Slams Egypt's Siege of Gaza

Gaza's Hamas terrorist rulers on Tuesday sharply criticized Egypt's closure of the Rafiah border crossing, saying Cairo's tightening of restrictions on Gaza was a "crime against humanity," AFP reported.

"The Egyptian authorities' insistence on closing the Rafiah crossing and tightening the Gaza blockade... is a crime against humanity by all standards and a crime against the Palestinian people," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a statement quoted by the news agency.
