A senior Hamas official said the Islamist group's officials had the right to have political representatives in all Arab capitals, Hamas-affiliate news outlet Al Resalah reported, a day after Jordanian Prime Minister Awn Al-Khasawneh said that Jordan is considering allowing Hamas leaders to reside in his country but not practice politics.
"One cannot prevent the Hamas leadership from practicing politics because its aim is to protect the rights of the Palestinian people," Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk said.
"We hope Jordan will rethink its decision in this regard," he added.
In a Monday interview with the Time, Khasawneh explained that “We will be finding modalities to bring back members of Hamas and their families to come."
