Hamas: Deal reached with Palestinian rival Fatah

Hamas: Deal reached with Palestinian rival Fatah

The prime minister said he considered Hamas "responsible for all acts of terrorism originating in Gaza", and called on the Palestinian Authority to prevent terror in the West Bank.

Egypt has previously attempted to help Hamas and Fatah create a united government for Gaza and the West Bank.

"Our future is one", senior Hamas leader Saleh al-Arouri said in televised remarks Thursday after two days of marathon talks mediated by Egypt.

Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas told AFP on Thursday, "I welcome the agreement".

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

The deal, reportedly concluded at dawn this morning, includes a provision for Gaza to be handed over to a unity government, led by Fatah, by December 1.

President Trump expels 15 Cuban diplomats following mysterious 'sonic attacks'
Obviously Cuba remains the main suspect since the attacks occurred on the island, but Canadian diplomats have also been attacked. So far, our government has not said that it has found evidence that Cuba is responsible for the sonic attacks on USA personnel.

Local media reports that Mr Abbas is to travel to Gaza in the next few weeks, which would mark his first visit to the Strip in 10 years.

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. In June 2007, its militants seized power in the Gaza Strip.

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.

Previous attempts at reconciliation have repeatedly failed, and many analysts are treating the latest bid with caution, waiting to see if actual change will occur on the ground. Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on the territory, severely restricting Palestinians from leaving the territory and goods from entering.

The new deal is understood to cover border crossing arrangements, Hamas' arsenal and the livelihoods of thousands of public servants.

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.
