DAMASCUS, (PIC)-- Hamas has asserted that it did not bear any grudge against Egypt but underlined that closing the Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza reflected an "inhuman image" that was not popularly welcome in Egypt itself.
Dr. Mousa Abu Marzouk, the deputy political bureau chairman of Hamas, told Quds Press on Tuesday that there was no dispute between his Movement and Egypt.
He added that no serious problems existed between the two parties despite the campaign waged by Egyptian media following the Shujaia events.
The Hamas leader ruled out that his Movement would look for another intermediary in the issue of the exchange of prisoners with Israel, adding that the Egyptians are called upon to endorse what has been agreed upon.
Hamas harbors no negative attitude towards Egypt and the rallies by MPs and Hamas leaders along with Palestinian masses at the Rafah crossing did not reflect a "collapse" in the relations between Hamas and the Egyptian government, Abu Marzouk underlined.
