RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fatah's revolutionary council will meet in Ramallah on Wednesday to discuss party matters and national issues, the council's deputy-secretary said.
President Mahmoud Abbas and central committee members will join the meeting, Fahmi al-Zarir said, adding that 10 council members from Gaza were prevented from attending by Israel.
Al-Zahir said in a statement that the council would discuss the next phase of the national struggle in light of Palestine's admission to the UN and Israeli settlement expansion, as well as the financial crisis.
The council will also discuss internal party matters, al-Zahir said.
The senior Fatah official said national unity and internal solidarity were the most important factors in the party's strength and durability.
