Fatah Responds to Hamas Criticism: ‘We’re Terrorists Too’ (VIDEO)
From the Wall Street Journal:
There were also signs Saturday that a unity government meant to bring Hamas into the Palestinian Authority had all but crumbled amid the fighting. The two sides had been trying to form a unity government in a step toward ending a seven-year-old Palestinian political split between Hamas and Fatah.
Samy Abu Zohry, a Hamas spokesman, said in an online statement that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas wasn’t supporting Hamas’s fight against Israel and was a “war traitor.” He added that Mr. Abbas “serves the hostile positions against our citizens and against our resistance.”
Fatah Spokesman Ziad Abu Ein said the description wasn’t fair, adding that Fatah fighters were “participating in the rocket fire toward Israel” and that two Fatah members had already died in the fighting. “Fatah in the West Bank is leading the struggle against the Israeli occupation,” he said.

The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades of Fatah took credit for at least 18 rockets on Saturday. They also brag about how they have assisted Hamas in fighting in Gaza, showing that the only unity between Hamas and Fatah is in violence.
Here is a video of a member of the Fatah terror group, in civilian clothes, in the middle of a city, shooting two rockets that were hidden in a cart. If the IDF would have bombed him he would be counted as a “civilian.”
Notice also how close the first rocket comes to hitting the building.
