Ramallah: The ruling Fatah in the West Bank has questioned the failure of Palestinians in Gaza to revolt against the Islamist movement of Hamas which rules the coastal strip with an iron fist.

“Why shouldn’t Palestinians in the Gaza Strip revolt against Hamas?” asked Ahmad Assaf, the official spokesman of Fatah in the West Bank in an interview with Gulf News.

Assaf claims that Hamas controls the daily life of Gazans and the movement imposes rules on people about what to wear and how to cut their hair. The movement has also imposed a ban on smoking Shisha.

“Hamas is driving the Palestinians in Gaza to revolt against it,” he said.

Assaf said that Hamas also picks who can travel abroad and who cannot.

“Hamas adopts double standards which has motivated people to consider a revolt,” he stressed. “The economic conditions of Gazans, except Hamas leaders, are miserable.”

“Hamas uses force to suppress all voices against it and is ready to use any measure to secure its control,” he said.
