The Palestinian Hamas movement denied accusations made by rival Palestinian group Fatah that it was intervening in the affairs of neighbouring Arab countries, including Egypt.

A press statement issued by Hamas denounced "the renewal of false accusations" against the movement, stressing that there had been no reported incidents of its intervention in any Islamic or Arab country historically.

Fatah had on Tuesday accused Hamas, ideologically affiliated with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, of being involved in Egypt for the past year, and of forming militias to defend the embattled group, UK-based paper Al-Arab Online reported.

Hamas called the accusations "fabricated illusions."
