BEIRUT, (PIC)– Izzat al-Resheq, a member of Hamas political bureau, flatly denied what was published in the Lebanese newspapers Al-Akhbar and Al-Safir that his movement had requested to change its political bureau’s residence to Syria or Egypt or any Arab country.
In a press statement, Resheq described the reports on the matter as propaganda designed to harm Hamas. He stressed that Khaled Mishaal and a number of Hamas political leaders, who are currently based in Doha, will not change their residence and will remain in Qatar.
He also denied reports saying that Hamas leadership in Gaza Strip called on Mishaal to leave Qatar. He vehemently denied such reports.
Hamas leadership has not even raised leaving Qatar as a topic for discussion, he said, adding that the group sees no need for such an action.
Resheq said that many Arab countries were open before Hamas, contrary to what some parties are circulating that it was facing a tightening siege.
