Hamas: Abbas's security apparatuses declined morally and politically. Message to Hamas: Why Not Call This for What it is: TREASON!
"GAZA, (PIC)-- Fawzi Barhoum, the Hamas spokesman, stated that the security coordination practiced by Fatah-affiliated security apparatuses with the Israeli occupation against the higher national interests of the Palestinian people is a decline in the moral, political and security values, confirming that Hamas will continue exposing this shameful collaboration.
In a press release received by the PIC, Barhoum highlighted Hamas's right to resist the Israeli occupation and to protect the land and Palestinian people in view of the Israeli ongoing aggressions and the political arrests practiced by PA chief Mahmoud Abbas's security apparatuses against Hamas members and sympathizers.
The spokesman denounced the ongoing repressive practices against civil liberties at the hands of Abbas's militia, especially against media and press reporters and headquarters, and the prevention of Palestinian newspapers issued in the Gaza Strip to be distributed in the West Bank.
He called on media outlets, press, and human rights organizations to express their views openly about all these practices and crimes committed against journalists, academics and national institutions.
In another context, Sami Abu Zuhri, the Hamas spokesman, refuted the Fatah spokesman's recent statements in a press conference, saying: "These statements express the state of shock the PA leadership were in after Hamas released grave documents in a press conference proving that Abbas's security apparatuses were not just a Zionist cat's paw to spy on Palestinian political leaders and fighters, but represented spy hotbeds working for many international intelligence agencies, especially the CIA."
Regarding the Friday march in the Gaza Strip, Abu Zuhri explained that they were not worshipers as alleged by the Fatah spokesman and some media outlets, confirming that Hamas dispersed "bullies and vandals who attacked public property including a police station".
He called on the Ramallah leadership to desist from its political lies and misinformation as well as its persistent attempts to bring back chaos in Gaza by sending orders and money to these vandals."
