Hamas PM Haniya, Hamas Military Wing Commander Al-Ja’bari Clash Over Distribution Of MP Galloway’s Aid Funds

Cross-posted from The MEMRI Blog

The Fatah website reports today, citing Hamas sources, on conflict between Ahmad Al-Ja’bari, commander in Gaza of Hamas’ military wing, the ‘Izz Al-Din Al-Qassem Brigades, and Hamas prime minister in Gaza Isma’il Haniya, over aid funding transferred to Hamas by British MP George Galloway.

When Al-Ja’bari demanded to know how the money had been distributed, Haniya replied that he had $1 million in his possession and that the rest had been deposited with the movement’s treasurer.

Al-Ja’bari took $600,000 and said that Hamas’ military wing deserved more than its political wing, and that the political wing had enough funds from what it collected from the public.
