Fatah investigating Libya arms deal allegations

April 5, 2011 8:24 P.M. (Updated: April 7, 2011 10:40 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fatah Central Committee is investigating reports that one of its members was involved in supplying arms to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, a spokesman said.

Rebel forces currently battling Gadhafi's regime said they seized Israeli arms smuggled into Libya. According to media reports, the Transitional National Council said Fatah Central Committee member Muhammad Dahlan was involved in sending the weapons.

Dahlan has denied the charge.

A spokesman for the committee said it was against Fatah's principles and the Palestinian people's interests to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries.

Palestinian Khaled Salam was also said to have been involved in the arms deal, but he is not a Fatah member, a statement from the committee said.
