Ya'alon: Hamas signed unity deal from position of weakness

May 7, 2011 13:06

Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe (Bogie) Ya'alon said on Saturday that Hamas signed the unity agreement with Fatah out of weakness.

He added that Israel should not "delude" itself into thinking that the agreement between the Palestinian factions is a real reconciliation.

"Abu Mazen is going to control Gaza and empty it of rockets? Will he allow Hamas to enter the West Bank? If he does this, there will be a 'Hamastan' there," Ya'alon said.
