Hamas: Abbas speech doesn't represent our people

Hamas on Wednesday blasted Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas following his speech to the UN Security Council, in essence denying the legitimacy of his rule.

In a statement to the press, Hamas noted that the political plan presented by Abbas in his speech does not reflect the national position which calls for an end to the Oslo Accords and which opposes a resumption of negotiations with Israel. The plan, claimed Hamas, expresses Abbas’s desire to hold exclusive rights to decision-making on the national level.
