A Belarus official claimed that the forced landing of a Ryanair plane in Belarus on Sunday occurred following a bomb threat by Hamas.

Belarusian authorities scrambled a fighter jet and flagged what turned out to be a false bomb alert to force the civilian aircraft to land and then detained an opposition-minded journalist who was among the passengers on board.
Artem Sikorsky, the head of Belarus’ Transportation Ministry Aviation Department claimed that Hamas was behind the bomb-threat and sent a letter to Ryanair threatening to blow up the plane unless the European Union “renounces its support for Israel in this war.”
“We, the soldiers of Hamas, demand that Israel ceasefire in the Gaza Strip. We demand that the European Union renounces its support for Israel in this war. A bomb is planted on this flight. If you do not fulfill our demands, the bomb will explode over Vilnius on May 23,” the full letter read.
This comes three days after Israel and Hamas accepted the ceasefire agreement to end 11 days of rocket-fire and violence in the Gaza Strip and Israel.Reuters contributed to this report.
