Hamas: Egypt no longer impartial in Palestinian reconciliation following ban

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egypt is no longer a neutral party in resolving the political split between Hamas and Fatah, an Hamas official said Wednesday.

Marwan Abu Ras, a Palestinian lawmaker affiliated to Hamas, told Ma'an that "we won't be reassured that Egypt can play an impartial role in reconciliation while Egypt antagonizes one side of the dispute."

The Hamas official condemned a recent decision by an Egyptian court to ban the activities of Hamas in the country and seize the group's assets.

"The Egyptian judge who made the decision did not bring a single evidence incriminating Hamas. Thus, the movement considers the Egyptian decision a pure political decision rather than a judicial decision, and that decision serves the Israeli occupation." more
