JERUSALEM (JTA) — Hamas asked the European Union to include Israel on a list of countries that support terrorism.
"We urge the EU to include the Zionist entity on the list of countries that support terrorism, as it represents a threat to international peace," Hamas said in a statement released Monday.
Hamas has accused Israel of being responsible for last month’s assassination of a Hamas commander, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, in a Dubai hotel.
The United States and the European Union consider Hamas a terrorist organization.
European Union ministers met Monday in Brussels.
