Hamas: Group not invovled in Jordan’s Islamists differences
Political bureau member of Hamas Sami Khater denied claims that the group might have been partly responsible for the ongoing divisions between Jordanian Islamists.
According to Khater, pointing the finger at Hamas is either the by-product of ad hominem campaigns targeting the group’s reputation or claims released by uniformed parties.
He voiced deep disappointment over the “scramble for lashing out at Hamas and the Palestinian resistance” propagated by Egyptian and Arab media outlets.
“Such accusations are groundless and sheer lies,” he said.
Khater slammed allegations on Hamas’s partial involvement in ongoing tensions between Jordanian Islamists, saying: “Everybody knows that Hamas has never meddled in Jordan’s internal affairs. It is a national liberation movement and a Palestinian resistance group with the sole aim of ending the Israeli occupation of Palestine.”
