Yehya Sinwar, leader of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the Gaza Strip, said on Monday that his meeting with a UN delegation over Gaza’s humanitarian situation was “completely negative.” Sinwar made the remark in a news briefing after a meeting in Gaza city with a senior UN delegation, including the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Tor Wennesland. Israel “is blackmailing the Palestinian factions including Hamas in solving the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip,” he said, warning that the situation might escalate again if the issue remains unsolved. The UN delegation “heard from us with interest and deep concerns, but unfortunately there are no indications of any good intentions toward solving the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip,” he added.
