HAMAS DENIES AGREEMENT ON THE GOVERNMENT’S DECISIONS
Gaza City, 20 Jumadil Akhir 1436/9 April 2015 (MINA) – Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, denied the claim that the latest decisions of the Palestinian unity government have been made with the agreement of Hamas, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said, in a statement on Wednesday, “If the government wants to prove its truthfulness, it should officially announce its approval of the letter of understanding reached with Deputy Prime Minister Ziyad Abu Amr”.
The Palestinian unity government decided on Tuesday to form a committee to arrange taking over the crossings in Gaza Strip as well as the reformation of the legal administrative committee to study civil issues in addition to managerial problems resulting from Palestinian internal division including the civil workers file.
The government’s decisions also include that the Palestinian ministers will work one week in Gaza and one week in the West Bank starting from next week in order to increase the interest in the blockaded enclave and to unify the governmental institutions despite obstacles.
In a meeting in Ramallah, the Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Al-Hamdallah pointed to the formation of committees to discuss the pending issues in the Gaza Strip including the reconciliation file.
Hamdallah stressed that all the files are linked to each other; that is, no solution would be made in terms of civil workers unless there are solutions for Gaza crossings and unifying institutions.
Hamdallah also confirmed that his government will not pay the salaries unless it takes over the crossings in Gaza.
Hamas Movement refuses the governmental decisions in terms of Gaza crossings and the civil workers in particular. It also charged the unity government of its denial to what has been recently agreed upon during Hamdallah’s visit to the Strip. (T/P3/R01)
