Fatah officials in Ramallah complained Wednesday their spokesman in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip was detained by Hamas security forces, the Palestinian Authority-run Maan News Agency reports.
Fatah lambasted Hamas and said the detention of Fayez Abu Aitah violated the reconciliation agreement signed by the two factions in Cairo.
"Fayez Abus Aitah's detention harms the basic rights of the Palestinians," a Fatah statement said.
According to Fatah officials, Hamas security forces have "insisted on preventing the movement of A'itah, making it impossible for him to do his job."
"In detaining A'itah," Fatah said, pointing fingers in its statement, "Hamas is harming the reconciliation agreement and working to bring its failure by creating tension between the movements in Gaza."
Fueding Fatah and Hamas signed a unity agreement in Egypt on May 4 setting out parameters to theoretically merge the two factions into a single PA government, but differences between the two groups have resulted in the agreement being little more than symbolic.
The Egypt-brokered unity deal calls for the appointment of a single cabinet of independent figures to carry out policies determined by delegates from the rival factions and a reciprocal release of terrorists held in Fatah and Hamas prisons. Neither stipulation has been achieved.
