Israel gives Hamas officials 30 days to quit PA

Interior Minister Ronnie Baron has given four senior Hamas members from east Jerusalem 30 days to quit all PA institutions or he would revoke their permanent residency status, Channel 2 reported on Monday night. Letters detailing the ultimatum were sent to Minister of Jerusalem Affairs in the Hamas-led PA cabinet Khaled Abu Arafa and three PLC members: Mahmoud Abu-Tir, Mohammad Tutah and Ahmad Adun. Without a permanent residency status, the four would be considered illegal aliens.
