Former PLO Spokesman: Hamas Committing National Crime


Former spokesman Ghassan Al-Masri of the Palestine Liberation Organization said, Sunday, that the efforts of Hamas to block Palestinian Authority (PA) elections are a national crime, according to the PA's Ma'an news agency.

Hamas refuses to let the central elections committee to prepare for elections in Gaza, despite the fact that voter registration in Judea and Samaria has already begun. Al-Masri said that the Hamas steps against the elections are causing the movement to get further away from the Fatah movement of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
