Netanyahu calls on EU to keep Hamas on terrorist list

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the European Union on Wednesday to keep Islamist militant group Hamas on its list of terrorist organisations, after an EU court ruled it should be removed.

“We expect them to immediately put Hamas back on the list,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “Hamas is a murderous terrorist organisation which in its charter states its goal is to destroy Israel.”
