Hamas Gloats Over Netanyahu Indictment

RAFAH, Gaza Strip (AP) -

The leader of the Hamas terror group says the corruption indictment of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu‏‏ raises the Palestinian people’s morale.

Ismail Haniyeh told reporters in Rafah in southern Gaza Strip over the weekend that serious corruption charges against Netanyahu were a sign “of more steadfastness” for the Palestinians.

The leader of the group that controls Gaza also said the indictment means more “resistance, both popular and armed.”

On Thursday, Israel’s Attorney General indicted Netanyahu for fraud, breach of trust and accepting bribes, making him the first sitting premier to be charged with a crime.
