Hamas criticised on Tuesday an Egyptian Court's ruling to ban the group's activities and close its offices in Cairo.
A member of the Islamic Resistance Movement's political bureau; Ezzat Al-Resheq said in a brief statement posted on Twitter: "The decision is political which targets the Palestinian people and their resistance".
The movement's spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum said the court's decision proves Egypt has abandoned its role to support the Palestinian steadfastness and resistance; stressing that Hamas will not retaliate despite this decision which he described as "unjust and unfair".
"Our goal and our weapons will remain towards the Israeli enemy," he said.
Egyptian advocate; Samir Sabri sent an urgent appeal to Egypt's interim president Adly Mansour; Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim and Prime Minister; Ibrahim Mahlab, demanding they ban the group's activities and to list it as a terrorist organisation; claiming that many countries around the world have already done so .
