Germany will ban Hamas from operating in the country, Chancellor Olaf Scholz told lawmakers Thursday

The pro-Palestinian association “Samidoun” will be banned in Germany after its members celebrated “the most brutal acts of terror in the open streets,” Scholz blamed Iran for backing Hamas. However, he had “no solid evidence that Iran has provided concrete and operational support for this attack executed by Hamas, who would not have been capable of these unprecedented attacks on Israeli territory.”
Scholz said: “The jubilant statements by the top of the Iranian regime and some other government officials in the region are abhorrent. The leadership in Tehran is unashamedly showing its true colours – and confirming its role in Gaza, he warned Hezbollah not to “intervene in the fighting” as “this would not only result in a justified and harsh Israeli reaction” but also draw Lebanon “to the brink of the abyss.”
Behind the scenes, Germany was working “in close coordination with Israel” with all its “might to ensure that all hostages are rereleased, confirming that they are deeply concerned about the children, women and men who have been trafficked into the Gaza Strip.
Scholz is counting on the possible mediating role of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Jordanian King Abdullah II bin al-Hussein and the Emir of Qatar, whom he will receive for talks in Berlin on Thursday.
