Fatah says Hamas bans Arafat event in Gaza

Nov. 8, 2012 10:49 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 9, 2012 10:19 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Fatah sources said Thursday that the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip was refusing to allow an anniversary event marking the death of Yasser Arafat.

The leadership of Fatah received a notice banning any popular or organizational events to revive the eighth anniversary of Arafat’s death, they said. Events would be held Sunday.

Fatah leader Yahya Rabah said the movement would find a way to mark Arafat's passing.
