DFLP fighters: truce with Israel a "burden"

Aug. 19, 2008 12:16 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 19, 2008 12:16 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - The eight-week old truce with Israel has failed to achieve the minimum expectations of the Palestinians, the spokesperson of one of the armed Palestinian factions in Gaza said on Tuesday.

The official spokesperson of National Resistance Brigades, the armed wing of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Abu Salim, says that "ongoing, daily and frequent Israeli atrocities in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank," and the continued closure of Gaza's borders mean that Israel has failed to meet the minimum conditions of the agreement.

"The truce started to be a burden," he said.

"The resistance factions have to reevaluate their attitude regarding the fragile truce that serves Israeli policy at first," he added.

Abu Salim's remarks are the latest signs of dissatisfaction among some of the Palestinian factions signed onto the ceasefire. Islamic Jihad leaders have also expressed disappointment, although the ruling Hamas movement remains committed to the truce.
