Ezzat al-Rashq, a member of Hamas political bureau, completely denied the presence of Mahmoud Ezzat, the deputy Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the Gaza Strip.
Rashq said that the continuing talk about this issue proves “the attempts by many parties to get Hamas involved in the Egyptian affairs.”
In a statement posted on Facebook on Thursday, Rashq also expressed Hamas’ condemnation of what he described as “the political and media campaigns against Hamas and its resistance approach.”
Rasgq referred on the trial of deposed President Mohamed Morsy and other MB leaders on charges of collaborating with foreign organizations to commit acts of terrorism and disclose official classified information, “the sole beneficiary of this charge, and of considering Hamas an enemy, is the Zionist occupation.”
“The movement considers Egypt its strategic depth, and it has and will not interfere in [Egypt’s] internal affairs,” he said.
