Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told Egypt's interim president Adly Mansour and army chief General Fattah Abdel al-Sisi that he is opposed to any Palestinian group intervening in the domestic turmoil engulfing Egypt, according to Israel Radio.

Abbas was apparently referring to recent reports that Hamas has come to the aid of the Muslim Brotherhood following the military's removal of its candidate, Mohamed Morsi, from the presidency.

Hamas has denied allegations that it is actively assisting the Brotherhood. Recent reports indicated that Hamas operatives were captured by Egyptian authorities in Sinai, which the Palestinian Islamist group also denies.
