Germany conducts searches related to activities of Hamas, Samidoun

Germany's interior ministry said it was conducting searches in relation to the activities of Hamas, as well as the Palestinian prisoner solidarity network Samidoun, which have been banned in the country.

"We continue our consistent action against radical Islamists," German interior minister Nancy Faeser said in a statement.

"With the bans on HAMAS and Samidoun in Germany, we have sent a clear signal that we will not tolerate any glorification or support of the barbaric terror of HAMAS against Israel."

Hamas is already a designated terrorist group in Germany, however, Samidoun was only recently banned in Germany earlier this month.
