US House Bill on Hamas Eyes Iran

Legislation in the US Congress would require the president to block sales of arms and impose economic penalties against any nation that supports Palestinian resistance group Hamas as part of a bid to “isolate” Iran, the House Foreign Affairs Committee said in a press release Friday.
“The bipartisan bill imposes sanctions on foreign persons, agencies and governments that assist Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad or their affiliates,” the press release stated, according to Sputnik.  The legislation would “further isolate Hamas and its backer Iran,” the chairman of the panel, Ed Royce, claimed.
The sanctions bill would require the US president to suspend aid and cut off arms exports to governments that support Hamas. The president must also instruct international financial institutions to deny loans and technical assistance to the violators. The committee charged that Hamas has murdered at least 400 Israelis and 25 American citizens. Both the United States and European Union have designated Hamas as a terrorist group.
