Official PA daily condemns Hamas attacks on Fatah members

Op-ed by Mahmoud Abu Al-Haija, Editor-‎in-Chief of official PA daily ‎
‎“Some ‘members of the resistance’ are ‎currently expelling their brothers in blood, ‎religion, homeland, struggle and fate, ‎under fire, only because they belong to ‎Fatah. One of them is now lying in a ‎hospital in the Jordanian capital Amman ‎with eight bullets in his body from the rifle ‎of a ‘member of the resistance.’‎
Will these violent acts, which we do not ‎care to describe at this time, contribute to ‎defeating the Israeli aggression? How will ‎the resistance be steadfast or become ‎stronger while the home front is beaten so ‎severely? Why is there unity in the ‎negotiations delegation while on the ‎ground, one faction pursues its comrades ‎in the trench?”‎
