Khairy al-Aridi, Palestinian Authority ambassador to the United Arab Emirates, denied reports by Hamas officials that Palestinians have been dismissed from their jobs in the UAE in recent months in a deliberate policy of expulsion, Reuters reported. "The charitable policy of the UAE towards Palestinians has not changed," he said in the comments which were carried on the front page of UAE Arabic newspapers on Friday. On Thursday, head of the Hamas refugee affairs department in the Gaza Strip Hussam Ahmed said there is "an operation of mass displacement of Palestinians in the UAE, especially those of Gaza origins, without known reasons other than security pretexts." He said many did not have passports and Arab states would not accept them with the travel documents they have. The Jerusalem Post could not independently confirm the report.
