Israel armed and trained Fatah members in order that they might stage a coup in Gaza. This was the first time which Israel actually had a use for Abbas, whom they had ignored prior to that. In the end, the coup failed and Fatah was mostly expelled from Gaza. Israel became disenchanted with Abbas and failed to deliver on promises they had made to him. This, in turn, gave Abbas the motivation he had previously lacked to represent his people honestly and not act as a shill for Israel. None of this was secret. It was all well reported in Haaretz. It is Israels well established routine to play the various Arab factions against one another.
