  • Patel said Hamas has significant extremist capability

LONDON: Britain’s interior minister Priti Patel on Friday said she had proscribed Palestinian militant group Hamas, in a move that brings the country’s stance on Gaza’s rulers in line with the United States and the European Union.

“Hamas has significant terrorist capability, including access to extensive and sophisticated weaponry, as well as terrorist training facilities,” Patel said in a statement.

“That is why today I have acted to proscribe Hamas in its entirety.”
