Egypt says Hamas terrorist group
28 Feb 2015 12:12
An Egyptian court has listed the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation, judicial and security sources said this morning, one month after a judge listed the group's armed wing as a terrorist group.
-
Hamas described the decision as shocking and dangerous.
-
Hamas is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood which the authorities have also declared a terrorist group and have repressed systematically since the army ousted one of its leaders, Mohammed Mursi, from the presidency in 2013.
-
"The court ruled that Hamas should be included as a terrorist organisation," Samir Sabry, one of the lawyers who brought the case against Hamas, told Reuters.
-
While the January decision against Hamas targeted only the armed wing, today’s ruling could have consequences for already strained relations between Egypt and Hamas, which rules Gaza, along Egypt's border.
-
A source close to Hamas' armed wing signalled the group would no longer accept Egypt as a broker between it and Israel after the January decision against Hamas' Qassam Brigades armed wing.
