Fatah official: Former Israeli PM Sharon poisoned Arafat

Official PA TV program Eight in the Evening, hosting Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad
Topic: Anniversary of the Fatah Launch (
Intilaqa)
Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad: “When Yasser Arafat said no [to Israeli proposals], Sharon said about him that there is no partner for peace, and decided to get rid of Yasser Arafat. Therefore, he used the means at his disposal. First he entered the Muqata’a, in the second stage he besieged Yasser Arafat, and in the third stage he acted against him and poisoned him, and Yasser Arafat died as a Martyr (Shahid). The same manner and style of speech is being used today against President Mahmoud Abbas.”
