GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- The Fatah movement will not accept any location to hold its anniversary celebration except Gaza City’s al-Katiba Square, member of Fatah Revolutionary Council Abdullah Abu Samhadana said Friday.

In a statement, Abu Samhadana wondered why Hamas opposed organization of Fatah anniversary ceremony at al-Katiba Square.

“While the Palestinian Authority allowed Hamas to celebrate its 25th anniversary in the West Bank the way Hamas wanted including rallies across the West Bank, Hamas rewarded that by preventing Fatah from holding its anniversary ceremony at al-Katiba Square where all Palestinian factions celebrate their anniversary,” Abu Samhadana added.

The Hamas-run government does not have the right to set the time and place for the festival “marking the takeoff of the Palestinian revolution.” He added that opposing the festival at al-Katiba Square is another way of banning the festival.

“If Hamas is really serious about maintaining the good reconciliation atmosphere in the Palestinian streets, let them allow Fatah to have its anniversary festival the way Fatah wants, rather than provoking more bickering which will only undermine the Palestinian victory in Gaza and the recognition of Palestine as a non-member state in the UN General Assembly.”
