Hamas blasts 'unfair and unprofessional' Amnesty report alleging rights violations

Hamas on Wednesday dismissed as “unfair and unprofessional” a report by Amnesty International that accused its security forces of killing and torturing Palestinians during last year’s Operation Protective Edge.
The Hamas Interior Ministry condemned the report, which was released for publication early Wednesday. “Then report was based on sensationalism and exaggeration of a few incidents that took place under unusual circumstances during the Israeli aggression,” said Interior Ministry spokesman Eyad al-Bazm. “This is an unprofessional report.”
Al-Bazm said that Hamas was prepared to cooperate with local and international human rights organizations wishing to investigate the situation in the Gaza Strip.
