A senior member of Fatah’s Executive Committee announced a new leadership commission in the Gaza Strip on Sunday, Quds Net has reported. Ahmed Hellis said that the new body includes officials who have experience in senior roles.

The faction’s mobilisation and organisation commissioner in the besieged territory noted that a meeting of the new leadership was held on Saturday night. Members were briefed about the current political and internal situation of the secular Palestinian movement.

Hellis also revealed said that there would be another meeting soon when responsibility for various portfolios would be determined. One of the most important priorities of the new leadership, he added, will be to regain commitment and respect among Fatah’s members.
