Senior Fatah leaders in Gaza have accused the new Fatah leadership commission of taking decisions in favour of the dismissed leader Mohammed Dahlan that reinforces his grip on the movement against Mahmoud Abbas, Al-Resalah newspaper reported on Sunday.

In a letter sent to Abbas, a copy of which reached Al-Resalah, the senior Fatah leaders said that the leadership commission in Gaza takes decisions different than those taken by Abbas and the Executive Committee.

They considered this, according to the letter, as a kind of insurgency in the movement, expecting this to cause a rift between the movement in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

They noted that the leadership commission “speaks about this clearly behind the closed doors”.

In addition, the letter included an urgent note warning of the “full collapse” of the organisational frame of Fatah that started when the current leadership commission took office.

The Fatah leaders who wrote the letter accused the current commission of connection with outside powers and serving external agendas, noting that it “fights the regions which adheres to Fatah and its legitimacy”.
