Fatah Officials Slam PA Probe Into Hamas Takeover of Gaza
Avi Issacharoff writes in Haaretz:
The Palestinians now call the committee investigating the Hamas takeover in the Gaza Strip “Tayebograd” a synthesis of the name of Eliyahu Winograd, who heads Israel’s probe of the Second Lebanon War, and Tayeb Abd al-Rahim, who heads the Palestinian inquiry.
Three days ago, Abd al-Rahim presented Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas with a report on the Hamas takeover, and Abbas has already announced that 60officers from the various Palestinian security organizations would be put on trial for their actions in the Strip. However, the conclusions of the Palestinian investigation leaves many of the “Gaza refugees” the Fatah officials who fled to Ramallah following the Hamas victory, and who are mostly affiliated with Mohammed Dahlan, the former Fatah strongman in the Strip angry and disappointed.
