A rejection of this proposal on the part of the Islamist movement would be proof that it has “not not the slightest consideration » for the Palestinians, he added later. “ If Hamas truly claims to care about the Palestinians and wants to see their suffering immediately alleviated, it should accept the deal “, said Mr. Blinken, visiting the Israeli port of Ashdod, close to the Gaza Strip.
