Palestinian resistance faction Hamas has dismissed as "baseless" claims by an Egyptian general that the Gaza-based group stood behind a recent string of militant attacks in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

"These claims are devoid of truth," Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said in a press statement, a copy of which was obtained by Anadolu Agency.

On Wednesday, Gen. Nabil Abul-Naga declared that militant attacks in Egypt's Sinai "are being planned in Gaza under the supervision of Al-Qaeda leader Hisham al-Saeedani."

In his statement, however, Abu Zuhri asserted that al-Saeedani had been killed in an Israeli attack in October of last year.

He appealed to the Egyptian media and security officials to stop "the ongoing defamation campaign against the Palestinian people and resistance groups."

Since the July 3 ouster of elected president Mohamed Morsi, a leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, relations between Hamas – an ideological offshoot of the Brotherhood – and Egypt's new military-backed rulers have worsened.

The Egyptian media accuses Hamas of "interfering in Egypt's internal affairs" and providing support to the Muslim Brotherhood – claims dismissed by both the Brotherhood and Hamas.
