Hamas and Fatah 'agree deal' for unified Palestinian government

Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah reach agreement in Cairo

"Sinwar congratulated President Abbas by phone on the completion of the national reconciliation project", Fatah - of which Abbas serves as chairman - said in a statement.

Since early this week, Egypt's capital has hosted direct meetings of emissaries from two factions, which ended in signing the agreement. "Unity and national reconciliation among the Palestinian people are our strategic option for moving forward".

Sanctions taken by Abbas against Hamas-controlled Gaza will also soon be lifted, the Fatah official said.

She added: "Israel must act in such a way that the world will not accept the Hezbollah model in Lebanon - a nice foreign government and an armed organization that continues terror". Hezbollah, a recognized terrorist group, is part of the Lebanese government, but maintains its own army.

One of the key sticking points will be the fate of Hamas's 25,000-strong military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

"Israel will examine developments in the field and act accordingly", said a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office.

Last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with Sissi in NY last month, denounced the reconciliation efforts, saying any future Palestinian government must disband the Hamas terror group's armed wing and sever its ties with Iran.

"Hamas and Fatah will hold a fresh round of talks in Cairo on December 1 to assess implementation of the agreement", the source said.

"The continued digging of tunnels, the manufacture of missiles and the initiation of terror attacks against Israel are contrary to the Quartet's conditions and USA efforts to renew the political process", a statement from the prime minister's office read. This has been considered the most serious effort to date to bring the two factions together since the 2007 split.

A split between Palestine's two major forces, Fatah and Hamas, occurred after the parliamentary elections in Palestine in 2006 when Hamas won.

Abbas has tried numerous times without success to fix the rift, in part to counter Israeli assertions that peace negotiations are pointless because he can't ensure that any treaty will also hold in Gaza.
