Egypt: Cairo accused Hamas of being involved in the murder of his Attorney General

Egypt on Sunday accused the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas to be involved with the Muslim Brotherhood, in the attack that killed in 2015 in Cairo to the Attorney General Hisham Barakat.
“This plot was executed on the orders of the Muslim Brotherhood (…) in close coordination with Hamas, which has played a very important role (…) in the assassination of Attorney General and oversaw the operation from beginning to end “said during a press conference the Egyptian Interior Minister, Magdy Abdel Ghaffar.
Cairo regularly accuses Hamas, which heads the autonomous Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip border with Egypt to support the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, which resulted in former President Mohamed Morsi, democratically elected in 2012 but deposed and arrested a year later by the army.
The new government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi, who punishes for blood all Islamist opposition, had decreed in December 2013 the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist movement.
The power accuses them of being responsible for a wave of attacks yet almost always claimed by the Egyptian branch of the jihadist group Islamic State (IS).
