Hamas on Sunday thanked North Korea for its support of the Palestinian cause, saying that Israel was “the leader of evil and terrorism in the world.”
Hamas and North Korea came together after Pyongyang launched a scathing attack on Israel and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, after Liberman had insulted North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
“Hamas appreciates North Korea statement in which it supported the Palestinian’s struggle and rejected the continuation of occupation,” the terror group’s spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri wrote on his Twitter page.
“Hamas (rejects) Israeli abuse of North Korea and confirms that Israel is the leader of evil and terrorism in the world.”
On Saturday North Korea condemned Israel for its nuclear policy and accused the Jewish state of abusing the rights of Arabs across the Middle East.
In an official foreign ministry statement Pyongyang threatened to punish Israel and accused Liberman of “rash and malicious” statements that insulted its leadership, after he last week criticized the Asian nation and called its leadership “extremist and insane.”
