Gaza - Ma'an - Palestinian Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahhar also revealed on
Tuesday morning that the Egyptians have suggested that a national army,
representing all Palestinians from all political backgrounds and spectrums,
be formed.

The various Palestinian factions have welcomed this suggestion and confirmed
that the security bodies should be activated on the basis that everybody
should participate in these bodies.

Kayed Al-Ghoul from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)
confirmed that his faction supports every step which leads to a reform of
these bodies so it can carry its responsibilities properly. He told Ma'an
via telephone, "The PFLP was one of the first factions who called on the
others to lift any support or cover from people who are members of the
security bodies so that these bodies can work according to their own agenda
and not the factions' agendas".

Salih Zeidan from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine
(DFLP) said that his faction also welcomes the suggestion. He stressed the
importance of ensuring that everyone has the equal opportunity to
participate in these bodies and that they are united under one, united

Speaking to Ma'an via telephone, Zeidan expressed his support for the
efforts made in this regard.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told Ma'an, "We support changing the security
establishment," adding that the security bodies should represent all
Palestinian factions.

Perhaps referring to the Executive Force, which is under the command of the
Hamas-led interior ministry, Barhoum added, "We used to call for the
establishment of a new, good security case."

The Fatah movement also welcomed the suggestion. Jamal Nazzal, one of
Fatah's spokesmen, said that there were many negatives to many of the
security bodies and Fatah welcomed the participation of every faction.

Nazzal told Ma'an, "We are calling on everybody to unite their efforts to
have the security bodies united under one leadership, no matter who the
leadership be. What is important is to have one security body".
