(Worthy News) - With the ink on the reconciliation deal between Fatah and Hamas not yet dry, with the mutual declarations of "real reconciliation on behalf of Palestinian national strength" still reverberating in the background, the first signs of division over the implementation of understandings began to surface over the weekend.
In response to reports that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is demanding Hamas relinquish its weapons as a condition for lifting the sanctions he imposed on the group, and reports in the Egyptian press that the head of Egyptian intelligence, Khaled Fawzy, relayed a message to Abbas that Hamas will not agree to discuss the demand, senior Hamas representatives said over the weekend that the terrorist group will not accept any dictates or conditions that include dismantling its military wing.
Ismail Radwan, a senior Hamas member, said in an interview with the Lebanese-based Al-Mayadeen network that only armed struggle against Israel will lead to results. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
