Following is an excerpt from an interview with PLO Representative in Lebanon Abbas Zaki, which aired on ANB TV on July 17, 2008.

Abbas Zaki: When the Palestinian Authority returned to Gaza [in 1994], Hamas did not have even 20 guns, weapons, and Fatah did not have even 100 guns. Abu Ammar, Allah's mercy upon him, flooded everybody with weapons, and sent our experts to produce missiles and weapons for whoever who wanted to fight. One of our people, General Abd Al-Mu'ti Al-Sab'awi, was martyred when he was making a rocket for them and it went off. He was developing missiles for them. Unfortunately, they [Hamas] have turned their backs on us now.
