Palestinian gov’t: Fatah responsible for barring entry of its leaders to Gaza

GAZA, (PIC)– Taher Al-Nunu, the Palestinian government’s spokesman, has said that Fatah’s insistence on retaining Palestinian woman Tamam Abu Saoud in custody led to the ban on entry of its leaders into the Gaza Strip.

Nunu said in a press release on Sunday that mediators had asked Hamas-run government in Gaza to allow a visit by Fatah leaders to the Strip, which the government did not mind on condition that Tamam would be released as a goodwill gesture.

No response was received, he said, adding that two Fatah leaders nonetheless arrived at the Beit Hanun (Erez) crossing but were not allowed to enter.

Once again Fatah is trying to twist facts and to show itself as the victim at a time it was practicing the severest forms of torture against Palestinian citizens in the West Bank, Nunu charged.

Meanwhile, the popular campaign for the release of Tamam from jails of the Fatah-controlled militias warned that real danger was threatening her life.

It said that a number of recently released detainees from Fatah’s jails heard one of the notorious interrogators threatening Tamam.

Fatah’s militias claimed that a Hamas cell was planning to assassinate Nablus governor and that Tamam was one of its members.
