Days of Palestine - Gaza

It added that they consider this move a continuation of the policy of suppressing freedoms and targeting advocates of resistance that the PA security forces practice against Palestinian residents of the occupied West Bank in order to undermine any resistance action against the “deal of the century” and Israeli annexation plans.   

Meanwhile, Hamas reiterates the necessity for the PA's security forces to abandon such suppressive practices and policies, immediately, release all political prisoners, end security collaboration, scrap any agreement with the Israeli occupation, and work on embodying national partnership among Palestinian factions and reinforcing the Palestinian people in the face of the Israeli occupation and its plots.
