"Israel claims without any proof that Daesh militants are using missiles against it and immediately responds with retaliatory fire. However we think that Israel was one of creators of this criminal organization," he told Sputnik.
The Palestinian politician also said that Israel has been killing Palestinians "with or without any reason." They don't take into account any principles of humanity and have no respect towards any religious holidays. During the holy month of Ramadan they have even blocked the square near al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, he said.
"After the coup instigated by Islamic Resistance Movement of Hamas and its takeover of Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), the Palestinian parliament, has been suspended from work. We however continue regarding ourselves as members of the parliament and demand ending up the split of the Palestinian Authority and returning order," the politician told Sputnik.
It is worth reminding that the conflict between Palestinian Fatah and Hamas movements began to rise in 2005 after the death of Yasser Arafat, the first President of the Palestinian National Authority and the founding member of Fatah political party. It intensified after Hamas' legislative victory in 2006 and its subsequent takeover of Gaza Strip in 2007.
After the 2006 elections which Hamas won, Fatah developed a plan to replace the Hamas-government. According to the plan, a national unity government or a "government of technocrats" would be formed and prepare early presidential and legislative elections.
The Palestinian National Unity Government was formed on March 17, 2007 following negotiations in Mecca, but due to failing international support, it was short-living.
As of August 2007, the Palestinian Authority became split into two polities, each seeing itself as the true representative of the Palestinian people – the Fatah-ruled Palestinian National Authority in the West Bank and the Hamas Government in Gaza.
Numerous subsequent attempts to reconcile and form another Palestinian Unity Government turned no success. The remaining Palestinian split substantially complicates any peace talks on the settlement of the decades-long bloody Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Masud Ganaim, an Arab deputy of the Israeli Knesset (the country's parliament) told Sputnik that Israel regards Gaza Strip as a hot spot and it is in Israel's interests to maintain tensions there.
"The latest shelling of this territory demonstrates that Tel Aviv does not care about any holidays or any economic or social situation there, it wants full control over the territory. Besides, the residents have been reminded that any aggression against Israel by Hamas will be punished," he said.
"According to statistics, we now could expect yet another Israeli war against Palestinians in Gaza, as every year or two Tel Aviv launches a war and nobody knows when and under which pretext it happens. Now there are all the preconditions in place: the split in Palestine has intensified, there is an Israeli blockade in place. The Arab society is too weak to stand against the Israeli aggression. And what is the most important, is the desire of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, to settle the issue with Israeli hostages kept by Hamas," Masud Ganaim said.
The parliamentarian suggested that in case of a possible war, it will differ from all the previous conflicts.
"They say in Israel that this time they will do away with Gaza Strip. I don't think that they are planning to occupy it, but they might be planning an extremely cruel war," he finally said.
