KUALA LUMPUR — Malaysia denied Thursday that it is providing training for Hamas fighters in Gaza. 

Deputy Home Affairs Minister Wan Junaidi Jaafar said the government has never allowed the country to be used as a training ground for Hamas fighters, even if Malaysia supports the Palestinians.

"It does not matter what kind of freedom-fighting group they belong to, even those against Israel, we have never given permission to have such trainings here," he told the Astro Awani television station. "The report is incorrect."
