Hamas dismissed Egypt’s accusations of assassinating top prosecutor


Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has strongly rejected Egypt’s accusations that the movement was behind the last year’s assassination of the country’s top prosecutor, calling them as “baseless”.

“Hamas calls on all parties in Egypt not to involve Palestinian factions in their internal differences,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a press release on Sunday, adding that the faulty Egyptian accusations were not in harmony with the efforts to develop mutual relationship between Hamas and Cairo.

The denial came hours after Egyptian Interior Minister Magdy Abdel Ghaffar told a news conference in Cairo that both Egypt’s now-banned Muslim Brotherhood movement and Gaza-based Hamas were involved in the assassination of Public Prosecutor Hisham Barakat in a car bomb attack in late June 2015.
