GAZA (Ma'an) -- A spokesman for the Gaza Strip Ministry of Interior spokesman denied reports of the death of a Muslim Brotherhood leader in Gaza in recent days.

Islam Shahwan said in a statement that the claims were untrue and "not worth answering," stressing that the Muslim Brotherhood's Deputy Supreme Guide Mahmoud Ezzat was never in Gaza.

Shahwan's statements follow claims by the "Brotherhood Without Violence" group on its Facebook page earlier on Wednesday that Ezzat was killed by militants in a hotel in Gaza recently.

Brotherhood Without Violence is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood that seeks to reform the movement from the inside, but which has voiced opposition to the groups close links to Hamas.

On Tuesday, an Egyptian court on Tuesday banned the activities of Hamas in Egypt and ordered its assets seized, amid accusations that the group "plotted" with deposed president Mohamed Morsi to commit "terror attacks" across the country.

Ties between Cairo and Hamas, the Palestinian affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood, flourished during Morsi's year in power but have deteriorated since the military coup against the democratically-elected Muslim Brotherhood government on July 3.
