Hamas frees six Fatah prisoners as part of unity pact

Published: 05.05.14, 21:42 / Israel News

The interior ministry in Hamas-ruled Gaza said it freed six prisoners from rival party Fatah on Monday as part of a Palestinian unity pact the Islamist Hamas signed with Fatah two weeks ago.

 

The move came as Palestinian president and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas met exiled Hamas chief Khaled Meshaal in the Qatari capital Doha, for their first talks since the groups agreed to soon form a unity government and hold elections.

 

Hamassaid the men had been serving sentences for "security offences". Fatah officials say over 40 of their members remain in Gaza jails. (Reuters)
