Abu Marzouk: Fatah’s security engagements with the US, Israel are a real problem

DAMASCUS, (PIC)– Deputy head of Hamas’s political bureau Mousa Abu Marzouk said that Fatah faction has a real problem regarding its reconciliation with his Movement over the security file because of its involvement in agreements with America and Israel.

In a press statement to Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper on Friday, Abu Marzouk added that there is ongoing security coordination between Fatah’s authority and the Israeli occupation state and more than 300 meetings have been held so far between the security forces of the two sides.

He pointed out that Israel threatened that it would not allow the rebuilding of the Palestinian security apparatuses or any Hamas’s participation in them, and there were remarks made by de facto president Mahmoud Abbas and Fatah officials that there would be no security partnership with Hamas.

The Hamas official, however, expected that the next reconciliation meeting between the delegations of his Movement and Fatah could be before the end of this month in Damascus.

For his part, senior Islamic Jihad official Mohamed Al-Hindi said that the inter-Palestinian reconciliation would be closer when all parties have the conviction that the political negotiations with Israel had reached a deadlock.

In a press statement posted on a Turkish website, Hindi added that Israel has right-wing tendencies and all the wagers that were made on a political settlement with Israel went awry.

“We have to admit that the political settlement has reached an impasse, and this means that we should return to the building of the internal Palestinian home,” the Islamic Jihad official underlined.
