According to the announcement, this measure is part of the EU's broader strategy to address the threat posed by Hamas, particularly in light of its activities in Israel, APA reports.

Effective immediately, Sinouar faces a freeze on his funds and other financial assets within EU member states. Furthermore, EU operators are prohibited from providing funds and economic resources to him.
