France Pushes for EU Sanctions on Individual Hamas Leaders After Recent Attacks

SanctionsFrance Pushes for EU Sanctions on Individual Hamas Leaders After Recent Attacks

France is urging the European Union to impose sanctions on top Hamas leaders following the group’s October 7 attacks on Israel. Currently, the EU condemns Hamas as a whole, but France seeks individual sanctions, primarily financial, such as asset freezes. The proposal, backed by Germany and Italy, could be adopted by EU foreign ministers in December. The United States has already imposed sanctions on key Hamas members in October. Israel responded to the October 7 attack with airstrikes on Gaza, leading to casualties. The specific individuals for EU sanctions will be determined based on France’s proposal.
