Hamas said it welcomed the resignation of that Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zhuri said Fayyad left the government in debt and downplayed the resignation's impact on the unity talks with Fatah:
The acceptance of Salam Fayyad resignation has nothing to do with the unity agreement but it is related to the conflict between Fatah and Salam Fayyad and that was explained during the latest revolutionary committee meeting for Fatah movement where there was a demand for the dismissal of Salam Fayyad because of the conflict between the two sides. Regarding to the unity agreement it is in the hands of Fatah movement whenever it is ready to fulfil the agreement totally and stop picking what it wants. Salam Fayyad has gone from the government after he left our nation with a lot of debt.
