The Vice-Chairman of the Political Bureau of Hamas has questioned the veracity of reports which claim that the Islamic Resistance Movement has changed some of its political stances, is withdrawing from Syria, and is disengaging from links with Iran. Dr Musa Abu Marzouk described such statements as "media reports with no validity on the ground". He was, he pointed out to Quds Press, "speaking to you right now from Syria".
This was reiterated by Hamas Political Bureau member Izzat al-Rishq, who added that while media analyses are to be expected, rightly or wrongly, the Hamas leadership continues to operate from Syria.
