Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has told Hamas that it must immediately remove its new terrorist-led security forces from the streets of Gaza. The unit is comprised of 3,000 terrorists loyal to Hamas. “It’s a very worrying situation,” Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said. “He ordered the development of the (regular) Palestinian forces, and ordered the Hamas-led forces to leave the streets.” Marching near the armed Hamas forces, the Palestinian Authority police chanted: “We are the authority and we salute Abu Mazen (Abbas).”
