Hamas warns PA after it arrested perpetrators Hebron killings

Hamas has warned the Palestinian Authority to stop detaining its members or risk becoming a target of the group. The warning came after the PA confirmed it had detained seven members of Hamas's armed wing suspected of involvement in the Hebron and Ramallah shootings last week.
A PA official said security forces had arrested Hamas members from separate cells linked to two drive-by shooting attacks that killed four Israeli settlers and wounded two others. The official, speaking to the AFP news agency on condition of anonymity, would not specify the number of people arrested. Other sources spoke of  seven arrests.
Fawi Barhoum, the Hamas spokesman in Gaza, accused the PA of  'high treason' and 'clear and direct collaboration with the enemy'. He said: 'The continuation of this criminal campaign crosses all red lines and is direct collaboration with the enemy in the light of day. It will only increase Hamas's determination to continue the resistance and intensify our painful strikes on the Zionist enemy. We call on you, Fatah militias, to learn from what happened in Gaza before the people reject you. You know full well that the hands that reached the heart of the enemy is also capable of reaching you," Hamas said in a statement posted on Wednesday on its military wing's official website.'Learn the lesson before it's [too] late for regrets.'
