Hamas slams shipments of weapons from Israel to the PA

Fawzi Barhoum, spokesman of Hamas in Gaza, said in a statement ” the weapons which Israel allowed in to the security services in the West Bank, the latest were 10000 machine guns, have all been a part of empowering such services to further undermine Hamas and other resistance factions there”.

He added that such actions would help enhance current division between Gaza’s rulers and the West Bank rulers, and that this would suppress freedoms , pointing out that the Palestinian people rather need weapons to defy the occupation not to protect it’. >>>>>

There is a double-edged sword here. The arming of one side in hopes that the other is diminished doesn’t mean that those same weapons won’t ‘back-fire’ (pun intended).
