Fatah Cancels Anniversary Events In Gaza

By

Fatah decided Thursday to cancel its anniversary celebrations in the Gaza Strip after the Hamas government rejected proposed locations for the event, a party official said.

Yahya Rabah, the deputy commissioner-general of the party, said Fatah made great efforts in the last 20 days to hold the celebration, but Hamas refused both al-Kateibeh and al-Saraya squares.

At a news conference, Rabah praised the role of national and Islamic factions as well as independent bodies, and Egyptian and Qatari officials who tried their best to enable Fatah members in Gaza to celebrate the 48th anniversary.

Rabah said Fatah was keen to keep the positive atmosphere in order to implement national reconciliation.
