At a ceremony honoring Hamas terrorists, Interior Minister Fathi Hammad, who oversees Hamas’s police apparatus, announced plans to establish the first-ever Palestinian “Defense Ministry,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

Hamas, designated as a terrorist organization by Israel, U.S., Canada and European Union, also operates as a political, social and paramilitary organization in Gaza. Despite attempts by Hamas to separate its various wings, most western analysts consider each to be inextricably linked as part of its overall terrorist infrastructure.

The Palestinian Authority (PA), which operates in the disputed West Bank in conjunction with Israel, controls its security and police forces through its Interior Ministry.
