Hamas spokesperson: We haven't abandoned Syria office

Hamas's spokesman Fawzi Barhoum denied Saturday reports that the group had quit its headquarters in Damascus amid ongoing unrest in Syria, AFP reported.
"Hamas has not taken any decision to leave Syria, and we are still there," Barhoum told AFP, adding that the visible movement of Hamas officials out of Syria is related to inter-Palestinian political reconciliation.
A Palestinian official in Gaza City told AFP that Hamas was not going to close its Damascus bureau, but said that "for reasons of security some leaders may feel obliged at times to leave the country."
