February 11, 2012 19:32

Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar attacked the Qatari-sponsored Fatah-Hamas unity deal, saying the decision to appoint Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as interim prime minister of the reconciliation government is "completely unacceptable."

Speaking in interview with Gaza news agency Palestine Today published on Saturday, Zahar claimed that Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal did not consult him or other members of the Gaza leadership before signing the agreement with Abbas last week.
