Fatah and the PLO have postponed their delegations' visits to Gaza, in what Hamas said was a "negative message" to Palestinians, Quds Press reported yesterday.
Head of Fatah's parliamentarian bloc Azzam Al-Ahmad speaking to Palestine TV yesterday that his movement did not get the needed permission for the visit.
Hamas condemned the postponement of the visit without reason, noting that it had announced that Fatah and PLO delegations "are welcome to visit Gaza".
"Putting off the visit … sends a negative message to the Palestinian people in the middle of the current dangerous situation," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said in a press release.
He added that the visit was due to take place today with a meeting with all the Palestinian factions and the independent politicians in Gaza.
