Ma'areef: Hamas has long planned to disengage economically from Israel
Israeli daily newspaper Ma'areef reported Sunday that the Islamist Hamas movement has been long planning to have the Gaza Strip economically disengaged from Israel.
The newspaper said that during years in Israeli prisons, the late Hamas's spiritual leader, Ahmad Yassin, met with an American delegation, as Yassin gave consent to a long-term truce (Hudna)with Israel, in return for a Palestinian state within the boundaries of 1967, adding one more condition that the Palestinian economy must be disengaged from the Israeli one.
