Hamas has taken the US president to task for waging a smear campaign against the Palestinian resistance movement following the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Flood against Israel on the seventh of October.
The resistance movement condemned Joe Biden for echoing Israel’s allegations of sexual violence and rape by Hamas fighters.
Biden on Tuesday alleged that Hamas had repeatedly raped women and mutilated their bodies during the October 7 operation.
Speaking at a political fundraiser in Boston, Biden said accounts of survivors and witnesses “unimaginable cruelty” had been shared over the past few weeks.
“Reports of women raped — repeatedly raped — and their bodies being mutilated while still alive, of women’s corpses being desecrated, Hamas terrorists inflicting as much pain and suffering on women and girls as possible and then murdering them. It is appalling,” Biden said.
In response, Hamas said Biden’s behavior proves his moral decline since he has just repeated Israel’s false claims about resistance fighters.
Hamas said such blatant lies are aimed at covering up “the Nazi Israeli regime’s war crimes” being committed against the Palestinians using American weapons.
The Palestinian movement also called on the international media to prove the falsity of new accusations leveled by the US and Israel as was the case with their previous claims about Hamas beheading children or using hospitals as its command centers.
Nearly 16,000 people, most of them women and children, have been killed in Israel’s aggression on Gaza since October 7 when Hamas launched an attack on Israeli-occupied territories, killing 1,400 settlers and military personnel.
