CAIRO, Egypt – An Egyptian court on Saturday, February 28, declared Hamas a “terrorist” organization, a judicial source said, weeks after the Palestinian Islamist movement’s armed wing was given the same designation.
Since Egypt’s military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013, the authorities have accused Hamas of aiding jihadists who have waged a string of deadly attacks on security forces in the Sinai Peninsula.
Hamas was founded in 1987 shortly after the start of the first Palestinian intifada, or uprising, and was inspired by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. – Rappler.com
