HAMAS denies its involvement in the training of Syrian militias, which was reported in The Times

A spokesman for the Islamic Resistance Movement HAMAS denied today the participation of members from its al-Qassam brigade in the military training of the militias of the Syrian Opposition which was reported in The Times of London on Thursday. The HAMAS spokesman said in a statement he issued today, what was reported in the Times is utterly false and has no foundation in reality. In the same statement the spokesman added, Hamas maintains the position of noninterference in the ongoing struggle in Syria. Our sympathy with the Syrian people and our support of their just and legitimate demands does not mean our involvement in this conflict.

Al-Kaarmil posted earlier a brief summary and a commentary on this report. It is also fair to post a brief summary of the official statement of HAMAS on the subject.
