Canada says Hamas’s actions in Gaza ‘unacceptable’

Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird issues a scathing condemnation of Hamas’s “unacceptable” actions in Gaza, calling the terror group’s rocket-fire “abhorrent.”

“It is inexcusable and completely unacceptable that Hamas has yet again chosen death, destruction and terror over peace, negotiations and a cessation of violence,” Baird says in a statement.

“Canada upholds Israel’s right and duty to defend itself and its citizens from such abhorrent, indiscriminate attacks,” he says. “Peace-loving nations around the world must denounce this latest provocation of violence by Hamas and stand by Israel, the only liberal democratic nation in the Middle East.
