Son of Hamas leader pleads with US to ‘pressure’ Egyptians to open border to Gazan civilians

The son of a founding Hamas leader begged the U.S. government to put “pressure” on the Egyptians to open their borders to allow civilians in Gaza to flee the Israel-Hamas war. 

Mosab Hassan Yousef, who served time in an Israeli prison and ultimately sought refuge in the United States, discussed the dire need for the Egyptian government to allow safe passage for Gazan civilians during “FOX & Friends.”

“We need somehow to put pressure on the Egyptian government, so they can open the border for the Gazans to just depart,” Yousef said Tuesday. “I don’t care if they depart for good. They can go for good. We don’t need Gaza… Gaza is a big refugee camp that was supposed to be demolished 70 years ago, but they kept up the hope that were given by the United Nations and the Arab countries.”
