Hamas responded Friday to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's declaration that he will take privileges away from Palestinians "terrorists" sitting in Israeli jails, claiming that the move would be illegal.

Spokesman for the group, Sami Abu Zuhri, said that Netanyahu's plan would be "a violation of international law." The international community, he said, should take action against the "crimes of the occupation."
