A senior Palestinian legislator and member of the Fatah Movement underlined on Monday that Fatah and the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) share the same view on the Zionist regime’s entity as neither one recognizes the Israeli regime as a state.
“No one in Fatah and Hamas movements recognizes Israel,” Abdullah Abdullah told FNA, asked if the so-called Fatah-Israel peace talks would continue, given Hamas’s opposition to the process.

The Fatah official further stressed Israel should realize that it cannot rule the peace process while having Palestinian territories under occupation.
“Palestinians who are a nation under occupation have and will resist against the occupiers and we witness Palestinian resistance and conflicts with the Zionist regime in most regions,” he said.
The official underlined that Fatah would never attend any negotiation with the Israeli regime if such talks are not based on the international rules, and stated, “If Israel withdraws from the Palestinian and Arab lands, it might be possible to enter peace negotiations.”
