PA chairman’s movement blasts “Israeli crime” of destroying terror tunnels leading from Gaza into Israel.
The Fatah movement, headed by Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, on Monday issued a statement condemning what it called “the Israeli crime directed against our people in Gaza, which resulted in the deaths of eight civilians and the wounding of 14 others.”
Fatah claimed that the destruction of the tunnel was “part of the policy of fleeing adopted by successive Israeli governments in an attempt to evade the corruption cases at the expense of the blood of the Palestinian people.”
Earlier on Monday, Hamas’s military wing also condemned Israel and said it believed the destruction of the tunnel was “an attempt by the enemy to impose new rules by committing crimes and attacks against our land, our jihad fighters and our people.”
The Islamic Jihad warned that the destruction of the network of terror tunnels constituted a “dangerous escalation”…
