A Palestine official had the perfect response to those claiming Corbyn ‘refused to condemn Hamas’
CANARY SAYS Palestine launched an armed attack on Israel on 7 October. It sent the UK’s corporate media into overdrive as it attempted to corral the public discourse into support for Israel. And there was one man they couldn’t help but circle like vultures to try and prise out a soundbite: Jeremy Corbyn.
Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, launched Operation Al-Aqsa Flood on 7 October. It sent thousands of rockets into Israel as well as fighters by land and air. Israeli soldiers responded, battling Palestinian fighters in the streets and sending air raids into Palestine.
At the time of publishing, the Palestinian Ministry for Health said Israel had so far killed 576 people. Meanwhile, Israel said Palestinian fighters had killed at least 800 people.
