BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – Hamas’ chief of international relations, Moussa Abu Marzouq, sat down for an interview with the Arabic-language version of the Sputnik News Agency on Tuesday to discuss a number of topics, including the Palestinian group’s relations with Iran and Syria.

When asked about Hamas’ current relationship with the Syrian government, Abu Marzouq responded that relations with Damascus are non-existent at this point.

“There are no developments regarding the relationship with Syria, despite rumors in the media or whether by speakers from inside the movement or inside Syria or from those around them or followers,” Abu Marzouq said, adding “there is no movement with Syria and there are no relations with Syria yet.”

Abu Marzouq did not specify if Hamas was planning on repairing relations with Damascus.

As for the relationship with Iran, Abu Marzouq explained that the movement’s relations with Iran are at an all-time best. He said: “There are strong relations with the Islamic Republic and it has not been broken at all at any stage.”

Iran is considered one of Hamas’ biggest backers and closest allies in the Middle East region.

If you by this logic then recently Syrian Arab Army confiscated / found a lot of ATGMs which were manufactured by US & Israel & supplied to FSA and other so called moderate rebels such as ISIS HTS AQ etc. Now who gave these special weapons to these head choppers which clearly shows that they wanted to massacre Syrians & Iraqis. In what way Syria has bothered Israel / US / UK / EU? Yet westerners have taken a fancy to just hate Dr.Assad for the sake of hating beacuse of this uprising in Syria. No one is holy but… Read more »

No surprise to me! I know about their ties for years, even if I didn’t knew about this tunnel boring machine. When Syria starts to understand her enemies are the same Israel has, this will be a great day for the regional stability and peace. Oh, BTW, main Hamas funders are Qatar+Turkey (both ruled by Muslim Brotherhood roaches) and… Iran… Interesting pattern : Iran pours money on Hamas, Hamas pours money on al-Nusra, al-Nusra attacks Syria… Oh, BTW, al-Nusra was originally the Syrian branch of ISIS! When al-Baghdadi started to want having more closer control on the Syrian branch, al-Julani… Read more »

Hamas backs al-Nusra/HTS and is OFFICIALLY part of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Had Hafez knew they were MB, they’d had been expelled from Syria long before 2012 since Syria is the 1st country having banned MB (1982).

Hamas was created by MOSSAD to cause division between Palestinians, plus their ikhwan roots will hurt them in the future. They will dry up just like Fatah.

Waiting for the troll to respond………

Moussa Abu Marzouq : lives in New-Cairo (may not last for long : al-Sisi is not really Muslim-Brotherhood friendly and ISIS/Sinai Wilayat are nothing else than Hamas members living in Gaza and using tunnels to enter Egypt to do hit’n’run attacks).
Personal wealth : est. $2.6 billions.

Several bi-nationals (Canadian, Brits) have been arrested too…
Typical of the coward Iranian regime to take hostages, we all remember the personnel of the US embassy having been used as hostages for 444 days in 1979-1980…
It’s time for NATO to give an ultimatum to Khamenei…
