During a TV interview on Palestinian Authority TV, Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen declared that Hamas is a “terrorist movement” and that “even if it were to rehabilitate the people who were imprisoned or had their arms or legs broken, it would return to its old ways within a matter of months.”
"Hamas is a terrorist movement. Hamas is the ISIS of Palestine. Therefore we must get rid of this terrorist group, which controls the Gaza Strip," Muhaisan concluded.
Hamas said in January that attempts by its rivals in Fatah to form a new Palestinian Authority government
will deepen the crisis between the two parties and will be a severe blow to efforts to end divisions among the Palestinians.
Since said time, relations have been rockier than normal, causing strife and a back and forth of backlash among Palestinian organizations.
