A senior Hamas official in Syria said Thursday there would be no change in Gaza's status and no Islamic rule declared in the territory after a near takeover of the seaside strip by the militant group. Moussa Abu Marzouk, deputy head of Hamas' political bureau, also ruled out Hamas separating Gaza from the West Bank. He said Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' decision to fire his Hamas prime minister would complicate matters and that Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh would likely continue on the job.
