Fatah dismisses Mohammed Dahlan

Faction cuts ties with official who fled to Jordan after being accused of revolt against Abbas

The Fatah central committee announced Sunday night it was officially dismissing senior official Mohammed Dahlan and cutting all ties with him.


Dahlan was accused of masterminding a revolt against Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas six months ago, and forced to flee to Jordan.


In an interview with al-Arabiya at the time, Dahlan rejected the allegations against him and said he had never incited against Abbas or his affiliates.


"These reports are a shame to the entire Fatah faction," he said. "The accusations that I incited against (Abbas) are unacceptable. These words… benefit elements such as Hamas and Israel."
