Hamas Denies Planning to Target American Interests

Spokesmen for Hamas Movement and its armed wing the Qassam Brigades on Monday denied allegations published by a Hebrew daily that the Movement was planning to attack American targets.

Fawzi Barhum, the Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip, said that the report by Yedioth Ahronoth, quoting an American paper, was completely untrue.

“Our battle is with the Zionist occupiers only and we will not target any country,” he emphasized, warning that publishing such “wrong information” was aimed at finding justifications to attack Hamas and its leaders.

For his part, Abu Obaida, the Hamas armed wing’s spokesman, denied the report, affirming that it was quoting an illusionary Qassam spokesman.

He underlined that none was allowed to speak on behalf of the armed wing except the official spokesman.

“Hamas limits its battle to resisting occupation inside Palestine and its armed wing has no military activity outside Palestine, we have not considered the matter and do not have the intention to do so,” he concluded.
