Hamas has shut down its bureau in Syria permanently and moved its staff members in Syria to the Egyptian capital of Cairo.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA), a Hamas official said that the Political Bureau administration gave orders to Hamas executives working in Syria to move to Cairo.
The same source said that Hamas officials in Syria will begin working in Cairo as of October.
"Hamas had obtained permission from Egyptian officials to open a new bureau in Cairo six months ago but did not inform the media on such a development perhaps due to a request by the Egyptian government or due to expectations on the end of crisis in Syria," the Hamas source told the AA.
