GAZA, (PIC)– The Hamas Movement said it is embarking on preparing an initiative with the participation of all Palestinian factions and forces to find a way out of the inter-Palestinian impasse and achieve the national reconciliation.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a press statement to Palestine Now website that the initiative calls for embodying a genuine political partnership, protecting the national constants and rebuilding the Palestine liberation organization (PLO).

Spokesman Barhoum accused Fatah faction of exporting its internal crises through making press announcements about alleged initiatives without directly talking to Hamas about them.

He also denied that his Movement received an initiative on ending the internal division from Salam Fayyad, noting that Fayyad does not represent any Palestinian party in order for Hamas to accept from him any overture.

The spokesman pointed out in another context that Hamas was able to establish contacts with the ruling military council in Egypt after the downfall of Hosni Mubarak’s regime, expressing hope that the relations between Hamas and Cairo would improve in the coming days.

In a related context, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri stated that his Movement welcomes any move made by the Palestinian youth to end the division, achieve the reconciliation and protect the national constants.

Spokesman Abu Zhuri made his remarks during a symposium held on Thursday by the federation of youth organizations in the Gaza Strip.

“Hamas blesses these efforts and is not afraid of them because it came to power through the popular will and the ballot box,” the spokesman highlighted in his speech.

The youth committee of national unity on Wednesday launched an initiative calling for pooling the Palestinian efforts in order to heal the internal rift, protect the national constants and rights, and end the Israeli occupation.
