General Secretariat of the Palestinians Abroad Conference Munir Shafiq has strongly rejected statements reported by a number of Arab newspapers and media outlets which have labelled Palestinian resistance as terrorism.

Shafiq warned of statements made by the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir against the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas): “The statements belittle the Palestinian people’s right to resist until the restoration of their legitimate rights.”

Shafiq hailed the awareness of the Arab and Muslim people who condemned those offensive and misleading remarks.
