RAMALLAH, Palestinian Territories: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas praised the role of Egypt’s army chief Field Marshal Abdel-Fatah el-Sisi saying he knew him as “a hero from Egypt”.
Abbas made the remarks during a meeting of Fatah movement to pay tribute to Palestinians who were killed defending their cause.
“I know Sisi as an Egyptian and Arab hero,” he said, adding, “Nobody can deny that he made a miracle.”
He also asserted keenness on the interest of the Palestinians saying that the movement would remain united despite the heavy pressure put on their shoulders by world powers.
The Palestinian president hoped a quick recovery from what he said “dispute” with Hamas to solve the crisis and build the state.
