Hamas condemns attack on Fatah leader in Gaza

Aug. 1, 2012 4:06 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 2, 2012 4:35 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas on Wednesday condemned the assault of a senior Fatah leader in the Gaza Strip the previous evening.

Yahya Rabah was leaving a restaurant in Gaza City when unidentified men approached him and beat him with bats, his relatives said.

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri condemned the attack in a statement but said he was surprised at attempts to implicate Hamas in the incident.

Abu Zuhri called on police to investigate the assault.

Rabah is being treated at Al-Quds Hospital west of Gaza City where his condition is stable, relatives say.

Rabah is a member of Fatah's higher leadership committee in the enclave, a writer and political analyst.

Fatah's mobilization and recruitment commission condemned the attack and described it as cowardly. In a statement, the movement called on its leaders and members to use self-restraint.
