The Hamas Movement has mourned former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who passed away on Monday, and hailed his role in serving the Palestinian cause.
Morsi died Monday during a court appearance to face politically motivated charges against him.
In a statement, Hamas said Morsi passed away after a long struggle in the service of Egypt, its people and the issues of the Muslim nation, especially the Palestinian cause.
The Movement applauded his great role in defending Jerusalem and the Aqsa Mosque since he was a member of the Egyptian parliament.
It offered its condolences to Egypt, its people, his family, friends and all those who loved him, praying to Allah Almighty to bestow His mercy upon him and make paradise his eternal dwelling place.
