(ANSA-AFP) - BERLIN, OCT 12 - Berlin will ban Hamas activities and organisations linked to the terror group in Germany, Chancellor Olaf Scholz said Thursday following the shock attacks on Israel. "The federal interior ministry will ban Hamas from operating in Germany. An association like Samidoun, whose members celebrate the most brutal acts of terror on the open street, will be banned in Germany," Scholz said in a speech to parliament.
    Germany pledged Israel its full support Thursday in the conflict with Hamas militants, saying Berlin's "only place" right now was at Israel's aide. "For Germany at the moment, the only place is at Israel's side," Chancellor Olaf Scholz said in a speech to parliament. "Our own history, our responsibility stemming from the Holocaust, make it an everlasting duty to stand up for the existence and security of the state of Israel." (ANSA-AFP).
