NEW YORK - A federal judge on Tuesday threw out a lawsuit brought by a US man wounded in the Middle East who sought to hold Arab Bank liable for providing material support to the Palestinian group Hamas.

US District Judge Jack Weinstein in Brooklyn, New York, held that Mati Gill could not prove Arab Bank was responsible for injuries he sustained in 2008 from gunshots fired from Gaza into Israel.

At the time of the attack, Gill was serving as an aide to Israel's then-public security minister, Avi Dichter, according to the complaint. Gill was wounded by sniper fire while touring Israel's border with a delegation from the Canada-Israel Committee, the complaint said.
