The Gaza Strip’s Hamas government has denied accusations that they are sheltering Iranian explosives experts.

The allegations that Iranian experts were working in Gaza to develop explosives destined for Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, which were made by Egypt’s Al-Watan newspaper, were brushed off by Hamas spokesman Dr Sami Abu Zuhri.

"We in Hamas deny claims about the presence of Iranian experts in the Gaza Strip," said Abu Zuhri.

In saying that the claims were insulting against the Egyptian people, Abu Zuhri referred to the accusations as "lies".

"They are producing these lies in order to tarnish the image of the Palestinian resistance and the people of Palestine," he insisted.
