A Hamas leader claims the terrorist group has had "direct meetings" with U.S. officials close to the White House despite a longstanding American policy to have no contact with Hamas.

The claim from Hamas leader Ghazi Hamad was reported in a Palestinian news outlet.

Top American representatives were in meetings Hamas had with European ambassadors and officials about two weeks ago, he said.

The officials discussed removing Hamas from the list of designated terrorist organizations, but that "these contacts have not yet reached the level of decision-makers," Hamad said in a Sky News Arabia report translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The alleged meeting has not yet been widely reported in Western media.
