PNI leader Mustafa Barghouti: ‘The real goal is to eradicate the Palestinian people’

As the war in Gaza approaches its fifth month, FRANCE 24 spoke to Mustafa Barghouti, a doctor, General Secretary of the Palestinian National Initiative (PNI) party and longtime human rights activist based in Ramallah. Barghouti called the situation on the ground in Gaza “absolutely horrifying”, with “people bombarded around the clock”. He also cast doubt on Israel’s stated goal of eradicating Hamas. “The real Israeli goal is to eradicate the Palestinian people, not Hamas,” he said. “They (Israel) know they cannot eradicate Hamas as a political force.”
