Foreign Minister Israel Katz tells EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell that his call to limit military aid to Israel is playing into Hamas’s hands.

“Israel adheres strictly to international laws of war, ensuring the safe movement of civilians in Gaza,” writes Katz to Borrell.

“In stark contrast, Hamas prevents their safe passage. Our commitment to the lives of Gazan civilians is greater than Hamas’s. Calls to limit Israel’s defense only strengthen Hamas. Rest assured, Israel is resolute in its mission to dismantle Hamas.”
