Ramallah - Ma'an - The Al Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of the Fatah
movement, have announced that they are giving Hamas leaders a period of 24
hours to condemn the incidents in the Gaza Strip.
In a press conference in Ramallah held late on Friday evening, the brigades
declared that Hamas leaders should condemn the bloody attacks in Gaza within
24 hours, or "we will look at their silence as complicity in these crimes,
and consequently we will have the right to take the decisions and stances
which we find suitable against them."
The brigades called on the minister of interior to resign, and to dissolve
the Executive Force. They called for the condemnation of "using of the
mosques and universities for military actions, turning these institutions
into military arsenals against the Fatah movement and the security bodies".
The brigades said that they are disagree with the formation of the Executive
Force in the West Bank, and called on Palestinians "to be careful in dealing
with this issue", before condemning the statements of the Al-Qassam Brigades
(the military wing of Hamas) in regard to the recent aid delivery, alleged
to contain weaponry for forces loyal to Fatah's President Abbas.
The brigades concluded by calling "for the commitment of all military and
security bodies in the PA to defend themselves very strongly".
