NEW YORK - A US man can proceed with a lawsuit seeking to hold Arab Bank liable for providing material support to Palestinian group Hamas, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday.

US District Judge Jack Weinstein in Brooklyn, New York, denied Jordan-based Arab Bank's motion to dismiss the entire 2011 lawsuit filed by Mati Gill, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel who was wounded in 2008 by gunshots fired from Gaza into Israel.

According to the ruling, a speaker purporting to represent Hamas claimed credit for the shooting that injured Gill. Gill is seeking monetary damages from Arab Bank under the US Anti-Terrorism Act, charging that the bank violated the law by providing financial support to Hamas.

Hamas, along with its leaders and affiliates, is designated a foreign terrorist organization by the United States.
