Fatah: Hamas-Israel agreement would lead to separate Palestinian state in Gaza

(Worthy News) - Fatah officials in the West Bank on Monday expressed deep concern over reports that Hamas and Israel are close to signing a long-term truce, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The officials warned that the agreement would pave the way for the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip.

The warning came amid reports that Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair have reached understandings regarding the proposed truce. Unconfirmed reports have claimed that Hamas was ready to strike a deal with Israel in return for the creation of a sea passage between Cyprus and the Gaza Strip.

Fatah spokesman Ahmed Assaf said that the reports about an imminent agreement between Hamas and Israel mean the consolidation of the split between the West Bank and Gaza Strip. [ Source ]

  1. Don't know what to think about this. But Israel shouldn't sign without a condition that turning Gaza into its own state would end all hostilities, and if Hamas fires even one rocket into Israel, Israel has the right to treat it as a declaration of war and respond accordingly.
