Erekat: Hamas Isn't a Terrorist Group


Hamas is a legitimate organization and does not carry out terrorist attacks, the Palestinian Authority (PA) chief negotiator claimed on Thursday.

Speaking on the Arabic-language A-Shams radio station, Saeb Erekat said, "Hamas is a political Palestinian movement, which is not a terrorist movement. We will resolve the dispute with it at the ballot box instead of using arms."
