UK moves to ban Hamas as ‘terrorist organisation’

Hamas has condemned a move by the British government to ban the group as a terrorist organisation, which could see supporters face up to 14 years in prison.

Home Secretary Priti Patel said on Friday she will push for the change in Parliament next week, arguing that it was not possible to distinguish between Hamas’s political and military wings.

Patel, who is on a trip to Washington, DC, said the move was based upon a wide range of intelligence, information and also links to terrorism.

The group called on its supporters to condemn as it described Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands, forcible displacement of Palestinians, the demolition of their homes, and the siege of more than two million in the Gaza Strip, as “terrorism”.
