RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Senior member of the Palestinian People’s Party Waleed al-Awad called in a statement Sunday for immediate legal action against the Fatah officers who recently threatened to exile dozens of Hamas leaders in the West Bank.

“We condemn threats by some Palestinian security agency officers in the West Bank towards several Hamas movement leaders after recently summoning them to security headquarters to exile them from the West Bank to any place they choose.”

Awad warned that the move signals a dangerous development in Palestinian internal relations. Exiling and depriving Palestinians the right to return to their homes is a political, national, and moral crime that is illegal for any Palestinian party to engage in, Awad added.

The People’s Party politburo member demanded an end to the PA’s political detention of Palestinians. “[The Palestinians] must end division and restore national unity to cope with challenges the Palestinians face in order to face potential Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.”
