“I hope the case is cleared up and we see who is responsible. A murderous attack of unprecedented ferocity by Hamas in Israel. There is a lot of tension in the area. A propaganda war is being played out here on both sides. The terrorist attack is brutal, we have never seen anything like it before. We defended Israel’s right to self-defense. We separated the Palestinian people from Hamas to receive humanitarian aid”, the PM stated.
Regarding the refugee issue he stated that, “the Palestinians do not want to leave their homeland. This would be neither in their own interest nor in the interest of Europe. The policy of guarding our borders will go on. Greece has a dominant position of Greece in the EU. The smugglers will not decide who enters Europe”.
