Fattah-Hamas Clashes, a New Round

Fatah and Hamas have always been rivals in their quest for governing the Palestinians engaging in bloody clashes. Both have recently been more ready to point guns at one another than sit and talk like reasonable politicians. Fatah has the advantage of being favoured by the EU, USA. and Israel. Hamas is still internationally isolated.

Hamas government is acting on its own principles, but at the expense of the welfare of the majority of the Palestinians who are hard-hit by the cut of aids from traditional donors, mainly the EU and the US.

Palestinians can’t go on waking up on the sounds of guns because of clashes between Hamas fighters and Israeli soldiers, then between Hamas fighters and Fatah armed groups.

What can settle the issue at least to ease the economic situations for Palestinians is early elections. Palestinians should get the chance to elect a new government to end current stalemate.
