Egyptian media campaign targets Hamas

Egyptian media has renewed its attacks against Hamas following an investigative report by Al Jazeera accusing Egypt of tightening the siege on Gaza.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Many Egyptian media outlets have renewed their attacks against the Palestinian Hamas movement after remaining silent for about a year and a half in light of a state of rapprochement witnessed between Egypt and Hamas during that period.

The Egyptian media attacks came a few days after the Qatari Al Jazeera channel broadcast an investigative report on Sept. 13, which accused Egypt of helping to tighten the noose on Hamas in the Gaza Strip and preventing the supply of weapons by establishing a buffer security zone along the border with Gaza.
