Hamas urges media of encouraging Hamas-Egypt split

Khan Younis - Ma'an - The Hamas movement accused some media outlets on Tuesday of intending to create a fissure in relations between the movement and Egypt. Hamas said, "Media outlets are spreading lies against the movement's members, accusing them of attacking the Egyptian embassy in Gaza City."

Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum said in a press release received by Ma'an: "Hamas has expressed its position rejecting what happened and affirming that this style cannot be accepted in any case. At the same time, we appreciate the Egyptian efforts in hosting the Palestinian factions' meetings and their support for the Palestinian people in addition to the efforts they make to release the Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails."

On behalf of the Hamas movement, Barhoum called on media outlets to respect the Egyptian efforts and roles, which are aimed at supporting the Palestinian people. He also urged the media outlets to respect the document which was signed between Hamas and Fatah in the presence of the Egyptian delegation to halt the incitement through media.

The Hamas spokesperson renewed his affirmation that the issue of Palestinian prisoners held in Egyptian jails can only be remedied through dialogue and consultations with the Egyptian authorities, who have repeatedly expressed their readiness to end this issue.
