An Egyptian court cancelled a ruling to list the Palestinian group Hamas as a terrorist organisation.
Hamas which runs the Gaza Strip, welcomed the decision by Egypt, adding that the move signalled a strengthening relationship between Hamas and Egypt.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri welcoming the decision said,
“The decision today represents a commitment by Cairo to its strong role towards the Palestinian cause. There is no doubt that it will have positive results and impacts on the relation between Hamas and Cairo.”
