Gaza: Fatah military groups want rearmament

April 5, 2011 3:37 P.M. (Updated: April 7, 2011 9:53 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fatah-affiliated militant groups in the Gaza Strip have asked the Hamas government to return the weapons seized from fighters in 2007 when the Islamist movement took control of the coastal enclave.

Twelve divisions of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades asked to be rearmed in a letter to the government.

"Our fighters are on alert to confront any Israeli aggression, incursion, or folly," the letter said, asking for the return of their weapons in order to fight the threat.

Infighting between groups affiliated with Hamas and Fatah neared civil war during the breakdown of a unity government in 2007, and entrenched the current political split between the parties. Hamas forces took control of the Gaza Strip and disarmed Fatah-affiliated militant groups.

The signatories of the statement included the Ahmad Abu Ar-Reish Brigades, Jihad Amarein Brigades, Sami Al-Ghoul Brigades, Nabil Mas'oud Brigades, Ayman Juda Brigades, Faris Al-Leil Brigades, Engineering and Manufacturing Brigades, Muhammad Siyam Brigades, Raed Al-Karmi Brigades, Luay Qanna Brigades, Marwan Zalloum Brigades and Palestinian Commandos Brigades.
