Former Fatah strongman Muhammad Dahlan had been voted out of the movement, according to a report posted on Sunday on the website of Palestinian news agency Ma’an. Dahlan ouster was reportedly decided by the Fatah Central Committee, and according to Al-Jazeera, Palestinian Authority President and Fatah chairman Mahmoud Abbas approved the decision. Dahlan was reportedly kicked out following an inquiry that found his conduct tainted by corruption and crimes.

Some of the central committee members denied the Ma’an report, saying Dahlan was never expelled from the party.
