UK officially designates Hamas as ‘terrorist group’

UK officially designates Hamas as ‘terrorist group’

The United Kingdom designated all of Hamas a “terrorist group,” warning that its members and those who support the group could face stiff jail terms.
The move had been announced last week, and was hailed by Israel. It followed similar action by the United States and the European Union.

“The terrorist group Hamas has today become a proscribed terrorist organization in the UK in its entirety following parliament’s approval,” the Home Office said.

“This means that members of Hamas or those who invite support for the group could be jailed for up to 14 years.”
