Hamas hails Kuwaiti tennis player for refusing to face Zionist opponent

Hamas: We highly appreciate the position of young Kuwaiti player Mohammed al-Awadi for refusing to play against a Zionist opponent in an international tennis tournament held in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

This genuine Arab stance taken by al-Awadi goes in line with the consciousness of the Arab and Muslim world and should be added to the lists of honour, Hamas spokesperson Hazem Qasem said.


This move reflects the noble national position of the Kuwaiti emir, government, and people by rejecting all forms of normalisation with the Israeli occupation and constantly supporting the Palestinian people and their right to fight for their land and holy sites, Qasem added.


Kuwait's official and popular stance against normalisation confirms that all attempts to divert Arab and Muslim attention from the Palestinian cause have failed, Hamas spokesperson noted.
