UK report: Hamas strengthened ties with Iran

A report issued by Britain's Parliament on Tuesday said that the West's isolation of Hamas had caused the group to strengthen its ties with Iran. According to the report, the international community had created a "dangerous situation" in which the Palestinian Authority was not responsible for its citizens. The report also called the current situation in the PA "unstable" and warned that the Western nations' refusal to talk with Hamas could have "negative results," Army Radio reported.
