RAMALLAH Feb 20 (JMCC) - Former Palestinian security official Muhammed Dahlan responded Friday to Hamas charges that two former Gaza security officers arrested in the slaying of a Hamas commander were working for him.
I don't have any companies in Dubai and I don't know these people, he told The Associated Press
by telephone from Amman, Jordan.
Only Hamas knew he (al-Mabhouh) was in Dubai, so it's their fault, not the Palestinian Authority's, he said. For political reasons Hamas is blaming us for its own internal problems.
Hamas said that Anwar Shheibar and Ahmad Hassanain worked in Fatah's security services in Gaza but fled in 2006, and currently work for a construction company owned by Dahlan, who remains in the leadership of Fatah.
A Fatah spokesperson denied these charges, saying that the two returned to work for Hamas forces. Read
