On Saturday 18 November, Foreign Minister Wong announced an expansion of sanctions against Hamas.
The Zionist Federation of Australia welcomes the Australian Government’s expansions of sanctions against Hamas-related individuals.
ZFA President Jeremy Leibler said, “The Government has put its money where its mouth is. Hamas terrorises Israeli civilians and imposes a medieval Islamist dictatorship over the people of Gaza. These sanctions demonstrate the Australian Government’s commitment to fighting terrorism.”
Mr Leibler continued, “Since the beginning of the current war, the Australian Government has backed Israel’s objective to remove Hamas from Gaza. This expanded sanctions regime is an important indication that Australia continues to stand with Israel in its just war against Hamas.”
