Hamas issued a statement on Friday denouncing Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar for her equation of them and the Taliban to Israel and the United States.

Issued by Dr. Basem Naeem of Hamas’ international relations office, the U.S.-designated terrorist organization said they “appreciate” her stance on “justice” for Palestinians but asked her to describe events “accurately.”
