The Palestinian Authority on Saturday accused Hamas of exploiting peaceful protests against the high cost of living to spread chase and anarchy in the West Bank.

Adndan Damiri, spokesman for the PA security forces, also accused Hamas of working to overthrow the PA regime in the West Bank.

Damiri claimed that the PA security forces have received information about Hamas's efforts to destabilize the situation in the West Bank. Damiri did not provide further details.

However, he told the PA's Voice of Palestine radio station that Hamas has never stopped trying to "export its coup to the West Bank and spark violence and discord among Palestinians."
