Fatah MP warns of Hamas crackdown in Gaza

Aug. 9, 2013 2:32 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 12, 2013 9:38 A.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Fatah MP warned of an impending security campaign by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, after its security forces raided the homes of several Fatah leaders in the enclave.

Majed Abu Shamallah said Hamas forces raided the home of Khalil Abu Hasna, the executive director of the National Commission for Development and Islamic Solidarity, early Friday morning.

The MP said Hamas forces confiscated Abu Hasna's cell phone, laptop, documents and his children's iPad.

The raid followed a charity event held by Abu Hasna's organization to help prisoners, the disabled and orphans, Abu Shamallah said in a statement.

Abu Shamallah denounced the raid, and said Hamas had ignored the sanctity of the holiday of Eid al-Fitr. He warned that a security campaign announced by Hamas may be launched after the holiday, which ends next week.

Meanwhile, Hamas security forces detained two Fatah affiliates from their homes in northern Gaza early Friday, the PA news agency Wafa reported.

Hamas forces confiscated al-Maqadmeh's cell phone during the raid, Wafa said.
