White House rejects Hamas involvement in Gaza’s future governance

The United States does not believe the Iran-backed Palestinian militant group Hamas can be involved in the future governance of Gaza when the war with Israel is over, the White House said on Wednesday.

White House national security spokesperson John Kirby, speaking to reporters as President Joe Biden flew to Minnesota, also said the United States does not support a permanent settlement of Gaza civilians outside of Gaza.
