Hamas is not a terror organization: Iran

Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) of Palestine is not a terrorist organization.

 Amir-Abdollahian said, 'On the contrary, Tel Aviv regime is an illegitimate and terrorist one which is weak vis-a-vis Palestinian resistance including Hamas and Islamic Jihad.'

He stressed that Iran strongly condemns terrorism in all its forms everywhere including Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Africa, and Europe, IRNA reported.

Amir-Abdollahian also said that Muslim Brotherhood is a part of the existing facts in Egypt, adding that political opposition and terrorism should be separated from each other with a realistic outlook.

An Egyptian court listed the Palestinian resistance group Hamas as a terrorist organization, Egyptian judicial sources said on Saturday.

In a separate development earlier in the day, a court sentenced the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood's top leader Mohamed Badie to life in prison while other members received death penalty.
