North Korea backs Hamas against Israeli ‘criminal actions’

North Korea is supporting Hamas in the group’s terrorist attacks against Israel.

Media reports in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea are voicing support for the terror group against Israeli military and civilians.

“A large scale armed conflict has occurred between Hamas of Palestine and Israel,” read the Rodong Sinmun, a state-affilitated news outlet run by the Workers’ Party of North Korea. 

North Korea does not recognize Israel and in 1988 recognized Palestinian authorities as the legitimate government of all Israeli territories.

North Korean officials and citizens are currently celebrating the 78th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

State media has praised supreme leader Kim Jong Un on the occasion, celebrating his commitment to expand the country’s military power.
