(Worthy News) – The Sudanese government has seized all assets belonging to the Hamas movement that currently sit in Sudanese land including hotels, real estate, company shares, farmland, and a television station – a value of $1.2 billion dollars, according to several media reports.
Hamas, which is classified as a terrorist group by many nations including the United States, had used Sudan as a refuge to transfer weapons, hide its members, and store funding while Omar al-Bashir was president. Bashir was overthrown and arrested in 2019 and will likely be handed over by the new government to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity over alleged atrocities in Darfur in the early 2000s.
Sudan’s new government has been seeking to distance the country from its former classification as a state sponsor of terror. It normalized relations with Israel in October and later revoked citizenship from head of the political bureau of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal. [ Source: All Arab News (Read More…) ]
