Source: Abbas attacked Mousa for his refusal to sever relations with Hamas

RAMALLAH, (PIC)–An informed Palestinian source revealed that Mahmoud Abbas launched a scathing attack on Amr Mousa, the secretary-general of the Arab League, because of the latter’s relationship with Hamas leaders.

Al-Jazeera net quoted the source as saying that there is strained relationship between Abbas and Mousa despite the phone call which took place Thursday between them.

The source added that Abbas asked Mousa to stop meeting with Hamas leaders especially head of Hamas political bureau Khaled Mishaal and to hold them responsible for obstructing the Palestinian reconciliation, but Mousa refused his request.

The sources pointed out that Abbas also strongly criticized Mousa in the last meeting of the executive committee of the Palestine liberation organization in Ramallah and said he does not deserve his current position as the secretary-general of the Arab League.

In another context, Dr. Aziz Dweik, the speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), said that the PA was exposed to international pressures to dissuade it from ending the inter-Palestinian division.

In a press statement to Al-Risalah net, Dr. Dweik added that the PA would not find better than Hamas to face the international pressures and the American support for Israel, calling on the PA in Ramallah to reconsider its strategy.

He affirmed that the Palestinians are demanded to change as long as the American policy towards the Arab region, especially the Palestinian cause, did not change.

The speaker also touched on the political arrests taking place in the West Bank, saying the arrests carried out by the PA against Palestinians are aimed to force them to change their loyalty and their belief in the resistance.

In a new development, Abbas’s militias in the West Bank reportedly kidnapped during the last two days six Palestinian citizens affiliated with Hamas in occupied Jerusalem, Ramallah, Tulkarem, Al-Khalil and Qalqiliya.
