Palestinian Leader Celebrates Reconciliation with Hamas

JERUSALEM – Palestinian National Authority (PNA) head Mahmoud Abbas hailed on Thursday an agreement reached in Cairo ending a decade of enmity between his Fatah organization and the Islamist movement Hamas, the PNA’s official Wafa news agency said.

The two groups have been at odds since 2007, when Hamas, winners of the 2006 legislative elections, expelled the PNA from Gaza after thwarting an armed attempt by Fatah to take control of the strip.

“What was agreed upon strengthens and accelerates the steps to end the division and restore the unity of the Palestinian people, land and institutions,” Abbas said.

Three days of talks at the headquarters of the Egyptian intelligence service produced accord on the formation of a national-unity government to take charge of administering Gaza.

Abbas instructed the PNA government to “intensify work to implement what was agreed upon,” Wafa reported.

He also called on all forces and factions to “to exert all efforts to achieve what our people are aspiring for in restoring unity.”

Abbas thanked Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi for acting as a mediator in the negotiations.
