Fatah calls Israeli incitement against the reconciliation deal "political terrorism"

A spokesman for Fatah has described as "political terrorism" the incitement by Israel against the Palestinian reconciliation agreement and national unity. In a press statement, Fayez Abu Eita said: "The incitement campaign, statements by rogue Israeli officials, calls for the reoccupation of the West Bank and demands to cut-off aid to the Palestinian people emphasise that the extremists in Israel do not like to see the Palestinians united. They seek to destroy the peace process and the legitimate struggle for a Palestinian state."

According to Abu Eita, the national reconciliation agreement and Palestinian moves to get formal international recognition of an independent Palestinian state "could isolate the Israeli government".
