Egyptian Junta listed Hamas as a “terrorist group”
Sunday, 01 March 2015 - 11:52
An Egyptian court has listed the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organization, accusing it of supporting an insurgency in northern Sinai.
The ruling comes a month after a different court labelled the armed wing of Hamas as a terrorist group.
Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, is an offshoot of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood - itself designated as a terrorist organization in 2013.
Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammed Morsi was ousted that year by a coup d’état.
