In an interview with the paper, he said that the sanctions imposed by the Palestinian Authority (PA), which is headed by Fatah, “represent a humanitarian and national crime”.
He also said that another condition to achieve a reconciliation is the agreement on holding a National Council that includes all the Palestinian parties.
On the other hand, other groups who fall under the influence of the corrupt and politically bankrupt Abbas/PA are also working against those who refuse to submit to their illegitimate authority, collaborating with the colonizing/occupying forces and imposing sanctions on Gaza

Al-Hayya called for Fatah to review its view about the reconciliation and to understand Hamas’ position regarding it.
“Fatah must recognize that it mistook reading Hamas’ position and it must meet the national demands that include lifting the sanctions imposed on Gaza.”
