Masri: Israel wants to thwart reconciliation between Hamas and Fatah

GAZA, (PIC)– Secretary-general of Hamas’s parliamentary bloc Mushir Al-Masri stated that Israel’s declared refusal of any attempt to rebuild the Palestinian security apparatuses in the West Bank on a national basis confirms it is seeking to frustrate the reconciliation talks between his Movement and Fatah faction.

“The [Israeli] enemy’s statements emphasized the seriousness of Fatah’s security apparatuses in the West Bank, which receive the acceptance from the Zionists, the thing which entails restructuring them on national foundations,” MP Masri told Al-Quds satellite channel on Saturday.

“The occupation cannot imagine that the Palestinian security apparatuses in the West Bank will be formed by a Palestinian will like their counterparts in Gaza, for it wants agencies hunting and disarming the resistance as well as protecting the security of its entity and settlers,” the lawmaker added.

He called for being biased in favor of the Palestinian people and reforming the security apparatuses away from Israel’s dictates.

Israel had declared that the Palestinian authority’s security apparatuses would be considered hostile forces if de facto president Mahmoud Abbas accepted to rebuild them and let Hamas Movement be part of them.

In a separate incident, the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped on Saturday two Palestinian brothers in Bethlehem city just a few hours after they were released from PA jails.

Local sources told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the Israeli troops stormed and ransacked the home of these two brothers, Ismail and Ibrahim Al-Arouj, in the village of Arouj, east of the city, before rounding them up.

The brothers were in PA jails for two months and released last Wednesday. PA security interrogators reportedly had tortured them and confiscated their personal money.
