Hamas rejects foreign military presence on Palestinian land

In a statement on Friday, Hamas said that the US-built pier off the besieged Gaza Strip is no alternative to opening all land crossings that should be under the supervision of Palestinians.

The statement added that the group rejects any foreign military presence on Palestinian land.

The Arab League announced on Thursday it was calling for a UN peacekeeping force on Palestinian Territories until a two state solution materialises.

The US has in recent months also been calling for a multinational Arab force to take over security in Gaza.
