Hamas must disarm, recognise Israel under Palestinian unity deal

  • Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah reach agreement in Cairo

Fatah party lost control of Gaza to Hamas, considered a terrorist group by the West and Israel, in fighting in 2007. Our suffering is one.

Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, said that he "welcomes" the Egyptian-sponsored reconciliation signed between Hamas and Fatah in Cairo.

Mr Abbas will visit Gaza in "less than a month", a Fatah official told Agence France-Presse.

Egypt has helped mediate several attempts to reconcile the two movements and form a power-sharing unity government in Gaza and the West Bank. He said Abbas' presidential guard would assume control of the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt, but did not specify a timetable.

The readout of the Secretary-General's phone call comes as media outlets are reporting that Egyptian-facilitated talks in Cairo have led to a breakthrough in the talks among Palestinian parties on administration in the Gaza Strip.

Levitz said that is not surprising, but insisted that the Giants doctors did nothing wrong in allowing Beckham to play. OBJ will play under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract next season before reaching free agency in 2019.

The split has complicated any potential peace negotiations with Israel, as Hamas remains committed to the Jewish state's destruction and has vowed it will not hand over its arsenal as part of a reconciliation deal with the PA. Unemployment is high, and electricity and clean water are scarce.

The same source, who preferred anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to media, said Hamas and Fatah had also agreed to allow the unity government to assume full responsibility for all of Gaza's border crossings by November 1.

Palestinian negotiators from rival Hamas and Fatah factions have signed a reconciliation deal at a short ceremony in Cairo.

He went on to say that, according to the terms of the deal, Presidential Guard units linked to the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) would be deployed along Gaza's southern border with Egypt no later than November 1. It is unclear whether that unresolved issue will delay Abbas' government's return to Gaza.

Ahead of the negotiations in Cairo, Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu warned against "fake reconciliations" and stated once again that Israel demands the demilitarization of Hamas. At Erez, Hamas maintained security control from a checkpoint near the crossing, while the Palestinian Authority had a small office to coordinate with the Israeli side.
