Hamas Min Spokesman: Abbas OKs Attacks On Hamas Security January 6, 2007

Posted by notapundit in World News.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)–A Hamas security official in the Gaza Strip on Saturday accused President Mahmoud Abbas of giving a “green light” to attacks on Hamas security men.

Khaled Abu Hilal, spokesman for the Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry, spoke shortly after Abbas declared Hamas’ paramilitary militia in Gaza illegal. The militia reports to the Interior Ministry.

Abu Hilal called Abbas’ decision hasty, saying it was “a green light to those who seek to shed the blood of the Executive Force members.” The unit has repeatedly clashed with rival security forces loyal to Abbas’ Fatah movement in recent weeks.
