Australia lists all of Hamas as a terrorist group

The Australian government has said it planned to list the whole of the Palestinian movement Hamas to its list of outlawed “terrorist” organisations.

Hamas’ military wing, Izz al-din al-Qassem Brigades, is already listed as a terrorist organization in Australia. After announcing the ban on Hamas in totality, Australia joins a small set of western countries, such as the US, the UK, the EU, and Israel, who have also done the same earlier.

Israel welcomed the Australian move, with prime minister Naftali Bennett thanking his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison.
