WEST BANK (Dispatches) – The ongoing cooperation between the two Palestinian groups, the Hamas resistance movement and Fatah, to topple the U.S. so-called deal of the century and the Zionist regime’s annexation is a "dangerous development”, Israeli Channel 12 has reported.
Channel 12 disclosed that such a possibility was expected, but the occupying regime did not expect that it would happen in such a short time-frame, adding: "It is a dangerous development because of the very short time they needed to reach this unity which surprised the Israeli security services.”
On Thursday, Hamas’ deputy chief Saleh Al-Arouri appeared with senior Fatah leader Jebril Al-Rajoub in a joint press conference, declaring their unity against the deal of the century and the occupying regime’s annexation plan.
"The press conference is not important, but what is happening on the ground is very important,” Al Watan Voice reported the Israeli channel stating.
Meanwhile, former Zionist communication minister Ayoob Kara stated that the Hamas and Fatah cooperation "raises concerns” as Fatah’s leader confirmed that his movement would let Hamas work in Gaza, Israeli Channel 7 reported.
Rajoub announced in the press conference that he was "confident about Hamas’ intentions,” noting that the Palestinians have been waiting for this conference to be the starting point of national unity.
Hamas called on other Palestinian groups in the occupied West Bank to join hands and start an armed struggle against the Zionist regime occupation.
Mahmoud al-Zahar, a co-founder of the Islamic resistance movement and a member of the group’s leadership in the Gaza Strip, says all Palestinian groups must follow the successful model implemented in the liberation of the Gaza Strip, namely armed struggle, in order to counter Tel Aviv’s expansionist policies in the West Bank.
Speaking to the Lebanese TV channel Al Mayadeen, al-Zahar said the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) must stop implementing its Oslo Accords with the occupying regime, and take up arms against the occupiers.
Hamas is going to ask for the cooperation of the Palestinian Authority and the Fatah movement in order to have new principles and mechanisms devised, he said.
The top Hamas official said based on new principles, a plan must be developed for the real liberation of Palestine, similar to the plan that resulted in Gaza’s liberation through armed resistance.
Palestinian resistance groups have declared their resolve to stand up to the Zionist regime’s occupation and the regime’s expansionism.
