Hamas: US military aid to Israel 'green light' for 'brutal aggression' in Gaza

Hamas has condemned the US House of Representatives' approval of a $17bn package of military aid to Israel, saying it "violates international law".

The group said in a statement that the new aid package "is a licence and a green light for the Zionist extremist government to continue the brutal aggression against our people".
