And no doubt blames Israel for that too. Perhaps some of these were among the victims of Hamas’ recent “crucifixion” spree? At any rate, if this is how Hamas “deals” with fellow Muslim Palestinians, what is the point of compelling Israel, the enemy par excellence of Hamas, to ever “negotiate” with the latter?
“Mideast: Fatah says Hamas ‘killed’ members during conflict,” from Adnkronos, January 19:
Gaza, 19 Jan. (AKI) – The largest Palestinian party, Fatah, on Monday claimed that the rival Islamist faction Hamas attacked its members during military conflict in the Gaza Strip in the past three weeks.
Fatah said 16 people died and another 80 were injured in attacks by Hamas which is the ruling party in Gaza.
According to the Palestinian news agency, Maan, Fatah sent a call to “Hamas and its members” asking that they cease attacks on Fatah affiliates following the end of hostilities in Gaza at the weekend.
Throughout the war Maan said there were unconfirmed reports of harassment and executions of Fatah party members, suspected collaborators and “petty criminals” that were released via several media sources.[…]
