Hamas on Wednesday dismissed as “politically biased” a report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) that accused the Islamist movement of torturing detainees.

The Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry described the report as “purely political” and claimed it had been written “under the influence of various external parties.”

Hamas also expressed disappointment that the report did not refer to human rights violations under the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.
