A Hamas movement spokesperson reiterated Saturday that the future of the group's armed wing is not up for discussion in upcoming reconciliation talks with the Fatah movement, scheduled to take place in Cairo on Tuesday.

 

 

Hazem Qassem told Ma’an that “the resistance’s weapons are legal. They are here to protect Palestinians and free their lands (from Israeli occupation) -- therefore, this should not be an issue to discuss.”

 

 

The Hamas spokesperson said that in fact, what should be discussed is the "enhancement" of Hamas' power as an armed resistance movement.

 

 

However, Qassem said that all subjects that "obstructing the reconciliation" would be discussed on Tuesday, including the National Consensus Government taking control of the Gaza Strip; later shifting the focus of reconciliation from Gaza to the West Bank; and ultimately holding presidential, legislative, and National Council elections to rule both parts of the occupied territory.
