Fatah says Hamas papers false: report

World Bulletin / News Desk

Members of Fatah's Revolutionary Council hit back at political rivals Hamas, claiming documents aired by the movement are "fabricated and falsified".

"We believe that Hamas came up with these documents as a step to launch a campaign against the leadership of Fatah, because they believe that Fatah may lead an uprising against the status quo imposed by Hamas in Gaza," Muwafaq Matar, a member of Fatah's Revolutionary Council, told Al Jazeera from Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday.

Hamas members held a press conference in the Gaza Strip, in which they displayed documents they claimed proved Fatah and members of the Palestinian Authority, the governing body in the occupied West Bank, were working with elements of the Egyptian government on a malicious campaign to tarnish the movement.

Ghazi Hamad, deputy minister for foreign affairs for Gaza, refuted the claims made by Fatah over the documents being fake.
