A senior EU official said on Friday he expected the bloc to adopt further sanctions against Hamas in the coming weeks.
"I'm pretty sure that the sanctions on Hamas will be adopted in the next couple of weeks, something like that," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The EU on Friday put two Hamas commanders on its terrorist list.
The two individuals are Mohammed Deif, Commander General of the military wing of Hamas, and his deputy Marwan Issa, the EU said.
Effective Friday, the two commanders are subject to the freezing of their funds and other financial assets in EU member states, while EU operators are prohibited from providing funds and economic resources to them.
