Former Fatah security strongman Muhammad Dahlan again rejected claims of an attempted military coup against Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas calling them fantastical. Dahlan stated that the investigation conducted last Sunday confirmed his negative statements concerning Mahmoud Abbas's sons, but did not reveal any personal involvement with a weapons cache or a possible coup, London-based Arabic language daily al-Hayat reported.

The conflict between Abbas and Dahlan arose after recordings surfaced of Dahlan speaking ill of Abbas and the need to replace him with another leader. Dahlan was then suspended from his seat in Fatah's Central Committee and had his personal security removed. Offices for a new television channel to which Dahlan was closely involved were also closed by Abbas. Dahlan is expected to travel to Jordan and wait there for the results of his investigation, scheduled to be released next weekend.
