Hamas: Fatah responsible for result of negotiations

Dec. 4, 2013 11:18 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 5, 2013 8:28 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Senior Hamas official Mahmoud Zahhar said that Fatah was responsible for any repercussions following renewed negotiations with Israel.

Zahhar said in a session for the Gaza legislative council that “the Palestinian negotiator (Saeb Erekat) is illegal, and does not represent the national consensus.”

“The agreements that result from these negotiations with the occupation hurt the rights and principles of Palestinians and are not binding on Palestinians,” he said.

Zahhar warned against the continuation of negotiations because “the results are predetermined in favor of Israel in light of the balance of power.”

He added that “armed resistance is the successful choice and strategy to achieve the Palestinian national goals,” and he called on factions to unite and achieve reconciliation.

The PLO renewed direct negotiations with Israel earlier this year after years of stalemate.
