The organization, known in Palestine as working for supporting the Palestinian people through offering of social and health services to victims there, was described in a report called national security implications for the trial of Holy Land Foundation as a terrorist organization that support Hamas with money through an international funding network.
Hamdan raised his eyebrows for mentioning a relation between Hamas and the Holy Land Foundation, the Hamas movement representative in Lebanon added:" The investigation into such issue has been closed.
This report about the national security implications for trial the stated organization was issued last September.
