The new anti-Hamas Tamarrod (“Rebellion”) group denied on Saturday that its members were being trained by Egyptian intelligence personnel.

The denial came in response to statements made by a top Hamas official, Yehya Musa, who claimed that the new Palestinian group, which is inspired by Egypt’s anti-Muslim Brotherhood Tamarrod grassroots movement, was being trained and operated by the Egyptian General Intelligence Service.

The Palestinian group’s denial came in a video, the second of its kind in less than a week.

The first video featured masked men who declared that the Palestinian Tamarrod group has started working toward toppling the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip. The group set November 11 as the date for launching a series of protests aimed at overthrowing Hamas.

In the new video, the group also denied reports that some of its members had been apprehended by Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip.
