Israeli ambassador to Nigeria, Michael Freeman, has said that Nigerians and citizens of other countries are safe in his country in spite of the ongoing offensive against the Hamas who carried out an attack on Saturday, October 7.
Who are Hamas terrorists?
Freeman who spoke at a press conference on Tuesday, October 10, said the Hamas is a terror group that wants to wipe out the Israelis but won’t succeed as they will all be wiped out.
He also stated that the war is against the Hamas and not against the Palestinians, Muslims, or Arabs.
Freeman said; ‘[Hamas] these are a terror group that have no mercy, and have decided that they want to slaughter the Israelis and destroy the State of Israel.
‘Nearly a thousand Israelis were murdered in one day. That was the gravest number of Jews killed in one day since the Holocaust.
‘But, do you know it is not only Israelis? They killed Arabs, they killed Israeli-Arabs, they killed others from different countries.
‘There is no justification for Hamas to attack. They have no right to hold children and women. Their major headquarters is under a hospital in Gaza.
‘We are focusing on ensuring that everybody is safe, and how we are going to do that is to eliminate Hamas.’
