Fatah: Hamas summoning members in Gaza

March 20, 2013 7:51 P.M. (Updated: March 21, 2013 7:17 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas security services summoned seven Fatah members for interrogation on Tuesday in the Gaza Strip, Fatah said.

Hamas' Internal Security Service summoned Nasser Badawi, a member of Fatah's advisory board, and Ayman Eshteiwi, a local council member, Fatah said in a statement.

Fatah leaders Ahmad al-Najar, Iyad al-Maghazi, Alaa al-Khatib and Hazim Abu Zakri were also summoned, Fatah said, adding that Abu Zakri had been summoned five times in March.

Ahmad Abu Jarad, head of the student senate at Al-Quds University was also called in for questioning, Fatah said.

They were ordered to appear at one of Hamas' new investigation centers in Gaza.

Fatah said the summons were part of the Hamas-led government's "insulting" policy toward Fatah that aimed to prevent the party's activities in the Gaza Strip.

Hamas frequently complains that its members are detained by security forces of the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.
