PA daily op-ed criticizes Hamas for ‎admitting to starting Gaza War

Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the ‎official PA daily and a member of the ‎Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza:
‎“The last war (i.e., 2014 Gaza war) raised ‎difficult questions which have received no ‎brave answers – for example, ‘Why did ‎Hamas refuse the Egyptian [ceasefire] ‎initiative when it was first proposed, only ‎to accept it later on exactly the same ‎terms? Why did Hamas give Israel a ‎dangerous gift for free, by strangely ‎admitting its involvement in the first move ‎that led to this war – despite the fact that ‎Israel does not lack excuses and pretexts, ‎and it would have been a thousand times ‎better for us for it to bear responsibility for ‎the outbreak of the brutal aggression?”‎
