Egyptian court overturns decision labeling Hamas 'terror group'

(MENAFN- The Journal Of Turkish Weekly) An Egyptian court on Saturday annulled a lower court's decision to consider Hamas a terrorist organization.

The final verdict was issued by an appellate court based on a petition by the Egyptian government.

"We welcome the verdict and consider it an important and positive step," Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan told Anadolu Agency.

On Feb. 28, a lower Egyptian court had designated Hamas as a "terrorist" organization over claims that the group had carried out terrorist attacks in Egypt through tunnels linking the Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip.
