Tel Aviv, Dec 14 (IANS): New York City Mayor Eric Adams has said that Hamas has to be destroyed.

The statement said that the families lit the Hanukkah menorah together with the Mayor.

Adams said, "We are at a defining moment, a moment when we understand the importance of light and what it symbolizes, especially after the terrible events of October 7. We want to be clear in our call: Hamas must be destroyed."

"I stand with the families of the hostages who came to New York to express the demand to bring their loved ones home now. It is a failure that those responsible for these heinous crimes are not brought to justice when there are hostages in Gaza while the networks are filled with hate," he added.
