DAMASCUS, Syria — Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that Palestinians are "living in a cage" in Gaza and that the Hamas must be included in all major efforts for peace.

Carter met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus where the two attended a meeting of the international group of veteran statesmen known as the Elders.

"We believe that Hamas should be included in all the major efforts to peace ... It is part of the Palestinian people," Carter said. He added that "1.5 million Palestinians are held in a cage or prison while their human rights are taken away."
