European court overturns decisions to list Hamas as terrorist lists

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The European Court of First Instance in Luxembourg has canceled the inclusion of Hamas and its military wing, the Qassam Brigades, on terrorist lists.

Lawyer Khaled al-Shuli said in a press statement on Friday that the European Court made an important decision in favor of Hamas.

He added that the court in Luxembourg, in favor of Hamas, in a public hearing held, on the fourth of September.

Al-Shuli pointed out that the court overturned all the decisions issued against Hamas and its military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades.

The decisions that were annulled are: Decision No. 2018/475, and 2018/1084 and the decrees issued by them numbers 2018/468 and 2018/107, according to Shuli.

For its part, considered the movement “Hamas” that the decision of the court is a step in the right direction, stressing that it must remove the name of the movement from this list, which it described as “unjust.”

The movement’s spokesman, Hazem Qassem, said that “the occupation should be classified in all international organizations and arenas as” Irharbi “. He committed all kinds of crimes against humanity, starting with his occupation of Palestine and expelling the Palestinian people from it, the massacres he carried out against the people and wars. And the continued siege on Gaza, the West Bank and Jerusalem.”

Hazem added that “resistance to the movement is legitimate according to all customs and laws adopted by international institutions,” noting that the classification of “Hamas” or a Palestinian resistance movement as a terrorist movement, is an injustice to the Palestinian people and their just struggle against the occupation.

“Hamas and the Palestinian resistance movements must be placed on the list of the noblest and most noble liberation movements in the world,” the spokesman said.
