Senior Fatah Official Criticizes Erdoğan Gaza Visit


Azzam Al-Ahmad, a member of the Fatah leadership, says any senior official who goes to Gaza and does not coordinate the visit with the legitimate Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership in Ramallah is deepening the split between the Hamas-controlled area and Judea and Samaria (Shomron), according to a Tuesday-morning report by Kol Yisrael government radio.

PA sources say PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas will apparently visit Turkey in the next few days in an attempt to dissuade Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan from a visit planned for the middle of May.
