Hamas suspends participation in unity talks in protest against "attempted coup"

Gaza - Ma'an - In the shadow of the bloody incidents between the Hamas and
Fatah movements, it seems that the national dialogue has been irrevocably
deterred from its former track.

The Hamas movement have announced that it has suspended its participation in
the national dialogue regarding the formation of the national unity
government, due to "the crimes committed by those who would overthrow us."

Spokesman of the Hamas movement, Ayman Taha, said that the intention of this
escalation can only be to ignite a civil war, and to drag Hamas into a
destructive war amongst the Palestinians.

The spokesman also said that Hamas "will not allow for those who would
overthrow us to drag Hamas into a civil war, which aims to serve only the
Israeli-American plans, and to implement the Rice-Livni strategy, which they
called for in Davos, over not forming a unity government."

Taha called for the Palestinian president to leave the summit of the World
Economic Forum in Davos, and return to the territories. He also called on
"the wise people of Fatah" to put an end to the turmoil.

The spokesman called on Palestinian factions to truthfully reveal who is
responsible for last night's escalation in the Gaza Strip, particularly in
the north.

Taha concluded that "Hamas will not succumb to the American-Zionist

The spokesman of the Fatah movement, Tawfiq Abu Khousa, stated "Fatah is
serious in making the dialogue succeed in order to extricate the
Palestinians from the current cycle of violence, and the removal of the
causes of the rivalry in the street, which Hamas is strengthening."

Abu Khousa accused Hamas of practicing "all forms of criminal acts." He
claimed that Hamas members besieged the home of Mansour Shlayel, a leader in
the Fatah-affiliated Al Aqsa brigades. "The house has been attacked with
rocket-propelled grenades, other projectiles and bombing devices. They
[Hamas] attacked the mass marches which went into the streets to lift the
siege imposed on the house, and killed and injured many".

He further accuses Hamas of "fabricating lies and accusations against Fatah,
causing an increase in the tension on the Palestinian street."

The spokesman accused "the bloody current in Hamas" of committing crimes
against Palestinians and the destruction of Palestinian properties. He
declared, "the bloody current in Hamas is executing the civil war plans and
igniting the civil war, in order to implement special agendas which have
nothing to do with the national interest."

At this time, there is a flurry of activity around the other Palestinian
factions, all trying their best efforts to stop the deterioration in the
Gaza Strip. Both the PFLP and the Islamic Jihad movements are busy
contacting all parties in order to reach an agreement to ends the bloody
cycle, and to bring the two largest movements back to the negotiation table.
