Press release on alleged plan to expand Gaza into Egypt

19 June, 19

Following comments by Ahmed Yousef about a proposal to expand Gaza into Egypt, member of Hamas Political Bureau and former Palestinian foreign minister Mahmoud al-Zahar stated the following:

I deplore the remarks made by Ahmed Yousef to Donia al-Watan news website, in which he claimed that a plan to expand Gaza into Egyptian territory was presented to the tenth Palestinian government, led by Ismail Haniyeh, and that I, as a foreign minister then, put forward this proposal to Egypt.  

These statements are completely baseless and go in line with false media narrative. The tenth Palestinian government and Hamas have never discussed any proposal to expand the Gaza Strip at the expense of Egyptian territories, in any of its meetings.

We refuse to receive any plan in this regard, let alone discussing it, as our position is obvious and constant that Palestine is Palestine and Egypt is Egypt.
