Hamas welcomed the decision by an Egyptian appeals court on Saturday to cancel a ruling to list the Palestinian group as a terrorist organization.

Hamas said the decision by Egypt, which faces an Islamist insurgency it says is fueled by weapons smuggled from Gaza, would help relations with Cairo.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri praised Saturday's decision as "correcting a previous mistake."

"The decision today represents a commitment by Cairo to its strong role towards the Palestinian cause. There is no doubt that (it) will have positive results and impacts on the relation between Hamas and Cairo," he told Reuters.
