(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Palestinian group Hamas on Saturday called on Palestinian government in Ramallah to lift sanctions on the Gaza Strip or resign.
"We demand that the government of (prime minister) Rami Hamdallah assume its responsibilities in full and lift the unjust sanctions imposed on our people in Gaza," said Hamas in a statement.
In a statement, Hamas said the government had fully assumed responsibilities in the Gaza Strip.
"However, it has continued to impose unfair sanctions on our people and failed to heal the rift and implement the agreements reached in Cairo," it said.
The PA, in a statement of its own, dismissed the charges as "irresponsible".
In October, Hamas and Fatah -- Palestine's two leading political movements -- signed a landmark reconciliation agreement in Cairo.
