Al-Aqsa Brigades: Hamas detained Gaza commander

Dec. 1, 2009 9:47 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 3, 2009 9:56 A.M.)
Bethlehem – Ma’an – Fatah’s military wing, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, accused the Hamas de facto government on Tuesday of detaining the group’s leader in the Gaza Strip, Muhammad Ubeid.

In a statement released Tuesday morning, the military group said, “At one after midnight, the de facto government’s security services detained Muhammad Ubeid, the general commander of Al-Aqsa Brigades in the Gaza Strip who is wanted by Israeli occupation forces.”

The statement held the de facto government accountable for any danger to Ubeid’s life.

In late November the de facto Ministry of the Interior said that it had reached an agreement with armed groups in Gaza to cease cross-border attacks on Israel.

Several groups, including the Al-Aqsa Brigades, denied having entered any agreement.
