Hamas: Palestinian Authority is Trying to Topple Us in Gaza
JNS.org – Senior officials at a Hamas press conference on Wednesday accused the Palestinian Authority (PA) of planning recent bombings in Gaza as part of a far-reaching effort to topple Hamas’s rule by destabilizing local security in the coastal enclave.
Hamas members specifically blamed attempts to undermine their terrorist regime on the PA’s intelligence chief and on PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s senior advisers.
They further claimed that PA officials were intentionally inciting Salafist factions and Islamic State terror group supporters in Gaza to revolt against Hamas and to fire rockets into Israel, breaking the cease-fire agreement put in place after Operation Protective Edge last summer.
Both the PA and Salafist leaders denied Hamas’s accusations.
