Japan announced on Tuesday that it has imposed a fresh set of sanctions on individuals and a company connected to the Hamas terrorist organization, Reuters reported.

The sanctions consist of freezing the assets of individuals and a company that have helped fund Hamas, and is in line with new sanctions announced by the United States government earlier this month.

It is the first set of sanctions Japan has imposed on Hamas since its deadly attack against Israel on October 7.

The sanctions include Hamas terrorists Muhammad Ahmad 'Abd Al-Dayim Nasrallah, who was named in the US sanctions announced in mid-October, and Ayman Nofal, who was eliminated in an Israeli air strike in Gaza earlier this month.
