Ottawa - Canada Strongly Condemns Hamas Says Israel Has Right To Defend Itself
Ottawa - Canada’s Foreign Minister John Baird said Wednesday that Ottawa backed Israel over Hamas after violence flared into the Gaza Strip following an Israeli assassination.
“We fundamentally believe that Israel has the right to defend itself and its citizens from terrorist threats.
“Far too often, the Jewish people find themselves on the front lines in the struggle against terrorism, the great struggle of our generation. Just last weekend, more than 100 rockets rained down on civilians in southern Israel from positions in the Gaza Strip.
“Canada condemns the terrorist group Hamas and stands with Israel as it deals with regional threats to peace and security.”
