Hamas softens stance towards Israel

The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas has unveiled a new policy document easing its stance on Israel after having long called for its destruction.


The document accepts the idea of a Palestinian state in territories occupied by Israel in the Six-Day War of 1967.

It also says its struggle is not against Jews because of their religion but against Israel as an occupier.

However, Hamas officials said the document in no way amounts to recognition of Israel as demanded by the international community.

Hamas's announcement comes ahead of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's first face-to-face meeting with US President Donald Trump in Washington tomorrow.
