​We strongly condemn all acts of terrorism and call upon Hamas and other terrorist groups to permanently end their incitement and rocket fire against Israel. The UK proscribes Hamas’ military wing and continues to abide by a no-contact policy with Hamas in its entirety. We expect Hamas to adhere to the Quartet Principles, including a commitment to non-violence.
