3 Suspected Hamas Fighters Nab in Germany, Face Court Hearings Today 

Three suspected members of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas will appear before a German federal judge on Friday, prosecutors said, a day after they and one other man in the Netherlands were detained.

According to DPA news, German prosecutors accused the four men of having sought to gather weapons that were to be kept ready for possible attacks on Jewish institutions in Europe.The man detained in Rotterdam is set to face trial in Germany after extradition proceedings are completed.All four are accused of being members of a foreign terrorist organization. They are said to have had “close ties to leaders” of the military wing of Hamas.The Egyptian national Mohamed B and the Lebanese-born Abdelhamid Al A and Ibrahim El-R – who cannot be fully named due to German privacy laws – were detained in Berlin.

Dutchman Nazih R was detained on the basis of a European arrest warrant issued by a judge in Rotterdam.

According to security sources, the men’s actions were not directly linked to the Hamas attacks on Israel on October 7.

Carrying out attacks outside Israel and the Palestinian Territories would be a change of strategy by Hamas.

Separately, two suspected members of the Lebanese Islamist group Hezbollah are to face a court hearing in Hamburg, also accused of membership in a foreign terrorist organization.

A spokesman for the court in Hamburg said that the judges had yet to decide whether to admit the charges.

Hezbollah is banned from operating in Germany. It denies Israel’s right to exist and uses terrorist methods to fight against the Jewish state.
