A senior Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) official on Tuesday accused Iran of supporting Islamic Hamas movement to use force against the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in the Gaza Strip.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, member of the PLO executive committee said in a press statement that “Iran helped Hamas to lead a military coup against the legitimate Palestinian leadership and to control the Gaza Strip.”

“Iran supports those hostile powers in Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories in order to serve its regional interests on the expense of the peoples and nations of the region,” said Abed Rabbo.

Last week, Hamas movement’s armed wing, better known as al- Qassam Brigades, along with the executive police force formed by Hamas last year, overpowered the PNA security headquarters by force.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ house and compound, which included his office and helicopter runway were also captured by Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip during the fierce fighting that left 130 people killed and dozens wounded.

Abed Rabbo said that he held Iran responsible for supporting, aiding and encouraging Hamas movement “to lead a violent coup against President Mahmoud Abbas and his authority in the Gaza Strip.”
