A senior Palestinian official today called on the Sundanese government to hand over the money it said it has seized from the Islamic organization, Hamas, to the Palestinian Authority.

“We hope that the state of Sudan, which has always been a supporter (people and a government) to Palestine, to hand over the movable and immovable funds that were confiscated to the State of Palestine and its Government,” Hussein Al Sheikh, minister of Civil Affairs in the Palestinian Authority and member of President Mahmoud Abbas’s ruling Fatah movement, said in a tweet.

“The Palestinian people are in need of this money, especially our great people under siege in Gaza.”

Sudan said it was going to seize all Hamas funds and assets that are found in its banks and within its territory as part of its campaign against the Islamic Brotherhood movement to which Hamas belongs.
