Fatah official: “Treacherous hand” helped the US and Israel murder Arafat

Headline: "Abbas Zaki: A treacherous hand helped the US and Israel assassinate the symbol Arafat"
     "Fatah Central Committee member [and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations] Abbas Zaki revealed that there are a number of sources behind the assassination of the late [PA] President Yasser Arafat. Zaki, in a statement to the Hamas movement website 'Al-Risalah Net', said on Thursday evening [Nov. 10, 2016] that the US and Israel are the main suspects in the assassination of Arafat (this conspiracy theory has been refuted by international investigators, -Ed.), in addition to a 'treacherous' hand that is suspected in the crime, and they are trying to investigate it, according to him. He added: 'This matter is very complicated, particularly because the ones who stand behind it are Israel and the US who place great obstacles before the investigation in order to thwart reaching the truth and announcing it.' Zaki emphasized that the investigation committee continues to search for the hand that committed the crime, and noted that they are postponing the announcement of the murderer so as 'not to harm the investigation and to reach the required results.' He noted that the announcement of the results will take place immediately after the investigation committee completes its work, and expressed hope that they would reach results in this matter.
[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas declared today [Nov. 10, 2016] that he knows the murderer of the late [PA] President Yasser Arafat, and emphasized that the result will soon be exposed 'and the Palestinian people will be astonished when it discovers who the perpetrators are.'"
