Ties between Abbas and Dahlan said to be deteriorating

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas believes that Mohammed Dahlan, the controversial former security commander, is trying to replace him, a source close to Abbas said on Sunday.
The source said that relations between the two men have deteriorated in recent weeks, especially after Abbas removed policemen who were assigned to guard Dahlan’s residence in Ramallah.Dahlan, who founded and headed the Fatah-controlled Preventative Security Force in the Gaza Strip, moved to the West Bank after Hamas took full control over the strip in 2007.
