The senior leader, who preferred to remain unknown, said that the differences are between the camp led by Secretary of the Central Committee, Jibril al-Rajoub, and Fatah Deputy leader, Mahmoud al-Alou, and the camp led by Secretary of PLO’s Executive Committee, Hussein al-Sheikh, and intelligence official Majed Faraj.
