Palestinian Territories: Hamas Denies Fatah Request For Celebration

Palestinian Islamist group Hamas has refused a request for celebrations of Fatah's 48th anniversary in Gaza City's Al Katiba Square, the Palestinian Maan News Agency reported Dec. 17, citing a comment from a Fatah spokesman. Fatah's Fayez Abu Aita said the party was particularly disappointed in Hamas' decision because the two groups had made strides toward reconciliation recently. Hamas' political position has strengthened in the wake of the recent conflict with Israel in Gaza.
