The Hamas terrorist group praised North Korea on Sunday after the Pyongyang regime issued a threat against Israel earlier this weekend, the Hebrew news site Walla reported.
On Saturday, the North Korean Foreign Ministry vowed the country would “mercilessly punish those who offend the dignity of our leadership” — a reference to a recent statement made by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, in which he called North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un “extreme and crazy.”
“We warn Israel to think twice about the implications of its defamation campaign against us,” the Foreign Ministry statement said.
North Korea also noted it was “fully supporting the struggle of the Palestinian people” to establish “an independent state with Quds (Jerusalem) as its capital.”
On Sunday, Gaza-ruling Hamas — according to a Shams news agency report cited by Walla — expressed its appreciation for North Korea’s words, stating, “Hamas condemns the Israeli insult to Pyongyang and emphasizes that the occupation is the leader of evil.”
