The Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas are making a coordinated effort toward the infiltration of a Jihadist movement into the Palestinian Authority for training purposes and the two organizations have been planning to establish armed groups in the Egyptian part of Rafah, it emerged from the main testimony in a trial against the Muslim Brotherhood in an Egyptian military court. The testimony was published in Egyptian newspaper Al-Aharam over the weekend and is based on documents seized from senior Muslim Brotherhood officials. The central witness in the case said that Hamas was considered the armed faction of the Muslim Brotherhood. Israel Radio reported Sunday that Hamas denied the allegations.
