Hamas dismisses Israeli sanctions

Palestinian Prime Minister-designate Ismail Haniya has dismissed the effect of Israeli financial restrictions on the Palestinian Authority (PA).

Mr Haniya told the BBC that Arab and Islamic states would offset a drop in Western aid and said Hamas would not disarm and recognise Israel.

Mr Haniya told the BBC he regretted that Israel had labelled Hamas a terrorist group, adding that “it should have responded differently to the democracy expressed by the Palestinian people”.

Regarding the withholding of foreign aid, he said: “The West is always using its donations to apply pressure on the Palestinian people.”

He said the Palestinians had “lots of alternatives”.
