Fatah Commission Recommends Exiling 100 Officials
A commission of inquiry set up by Fatah chief and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas determined that 100 senior Fatah terrorists who ran away from Gaza to Judea and Samaria should be exiled to Egypt as a result of their failure to prevent Hamas from taking over Gaza.
The commission named 60 senior Fatah members, accusing them of negligence resulting in Hamas’s successful takeover of strategic locations.
The rest of those named held field positions. Abbas claims he will implement the recommendations speedily.
