PA daily column blames Hamas for Gaza wars: "you got the Palestinian people into this"

Excerpt of a column by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for official PA daily and former advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs


Headline: “Haniyeh’s plan”



The column responds to comments made by Hamas Political Bureau Chairman Ismail Haniyeh -Ed.


“Where is your resistance? Do you and your comrades in the [Hamas] Movement think that the four wars, or the confrontations from 2008-2009 until 2021 that you got the Palestinian people into, have tricked [the people]? And especially in the Gaza Strip, where it paid and continues to pay the price of your quixotic wars, even though Martyrs and heroes died in them from all the [political] movements and factions, including from your [Hamas] Movement.”
