A senior official of Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has reiterated that any conciliatory agreement resulting from the ongoing US-backed negotiations between the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the Israeli occupiers would be “non-binding” for the Palestinian people.

Mahmoud Al-Zahhar made the remarks during a special session held Wednesday by the Palestinian legislative council to discuss the report that was submitted by its political committee on the talks between the PA and the Tel Aviv regime.

Zahhar further called for the establishment of a national front opposing any negotiations with the occupying regime while addressing their “detrimental impacts on the Palestinian rights and constants.”

"The Palestinian negotiators are illegitimate, neither they represent the national consensus nor they have the majority that allows them to speak on behalf the Palestinian people," the Hamas official reiterated.

Zahhar also affirmed that the Fatah faction took the Palestinian cause to a dangerous level in its negotiations with the Israelis and waived many Palestinian rights, noting that the results of the negotiations had already been “settled in advance by the US sponsor in favor of the occupation.”

Fatah chose to obey America in order to protect its presence as a representative of the people and insure financial support, he emphasized.

The Hamas official demanded the Arab League to assume its responsibility towards the Palestinian cause and declare its rejection of the peace negotiations which only serve Israel's goals in the region.
