A senior Hamas official in Syria warned Thursday the rival moderate Fatah movement from carrying the fighting with the militant group from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank. Moussa Abu Marzouk, deputy head of Hamas' political bureau, also said that Hamas has talked with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah about a seven-point deal to stop the violence, but blamed some unnamed parties for blocking the deal. Abu Marzouk told The Associated Press that Fatah has threatened to carry the fighting to its stronghold the West Bank, where Hamas is weak. There were already some sporadic clashes in some West Bank areas early Thursday. "This is very dangerous for our people," Abu Marzouk said by telephone in Damascus, where several top Hamas leaders live in exile. "All wise people, especially in Fatah, should be aware of this danger and should prevent the men of (Fatah) ... from endangering the West Bank's security as they had done in Gaza Strip."
