Hamas denied on Saturday a report that appeared in Lebanese news outlet Elaph that one of Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal's daughter was arrested along with her husband in Syria over corruption charges, Egyptian daily Al Ahram's news website reported.

Hamas - in a written statement - called the report baseless and said it was simply an attempt to "discredit" the Islamist group and its leaders.

According the Elaph report, Syria also arrested two employees in Mashaal's Damascus residence on suspicions that they doubled as spies for the Mossad.
