Gaza government to release Fatah detainees

Dec. 25, 2012 5:17 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 26, 2012 7:29 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The government in Gaza will release detainees from Fatah who were convicted of security and criminal offenses, the deputy prime minister said Tuesday.

Ziyad al-Thatha said the decision was aimed at promoting a good atmosphere for national reconciliation.

Speaking at a press briefing in Gaza City, the official said the government was allowing Fatah to operate in Gaza, and took a previous decision to allow 17 Fatah members to return.

Most senior Fatah officials departed Gaza in the aftermath of a brief civil war in 2007 when Hamas took control of Gaza and Fatah in the West Bank.

Years of talks have produced little and two reconciliation deals have yet to be implemented.
