Israeli sources have revealed that the dismissed Fatah leader Mohamed Dahlan suing the Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, accusing him of violating human rights. Dahlan hired a law firm owned by Zaki Kamal, a lawyer from Israel, to sue Abbas at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.

In the lawsuit, Dahlan accused Abbas of storming his home, arresting his guards, stripping him of his parliamentary immunity, arresting members of his family and confiscating his money.

“I and my family have, for a long time been subjected to terror and harassment, persecution, arrests, defamation, threats to life and damage to property. The campaign against me knows no moral or legal limits, nor national boundaries,” Dahlan wrote in the suit.

Dahlan alleged that he has been pursued because he warned against financial and administrative corruption by Abbas in the Palestinian Authority.

According to the same sources, Dahlan has decided to sue Abbas in several European courts in the UK and Belgium.
