Fatah demands apology.
Fatah announced in a statement and carried by AL HAYAT that "Hamas needs to offer an apology to Fatah and the Palestinian people" from preventing the Fatah delegation from entering Gaza. Fatah said that preventing Fatah from entering the Islamist-controlled enclave was "disgraceful and unacceptable", adding that it "will reevaluate Hamas' intentions toward Palestinian reconciliation." Fatah also criticized Hamas' statement, in which it announced that it had prevented the Fatah delegation from entering the Gaza Strip, saying that it served as an attempt to "thwart all efforts that have been made to achieve Palestinian reconciliation." Fatah slammed some "Hamas officials in Gaza ... whose hands are stained with the blood of our people and our movement and who do not have the right to accuse anyone, because they are the ones who should be tried for the crimes they have committed against the national Palestinian plan and Palestinian fighters." Fatah was referring to Sakher Bseiso whom Hamas accused of "cursing God."
