Palestine's Fatah, Hamas reach reconciliation deal

Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas sign reconciliation deal in major breakthrough

The talks between Fatah and Hamas were conducted after Egypt tried several times to resolve the conflict between the two factions and establish a unity government in Gaza and the West Bank.

"According security measures will be applied and adopted by the Palestinian Authority where the presidential guards will be spread all over the borders", said al-Ahmad.

According to the agreement, the Western-backed Palestinian Authority will resume all governing responsibilities in Gaza no later than December 1.

He also said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas - who heads both the PA and the Ramallah government - had instructed members of the Fatah delegation to "end the state of Palestinian division once and for all".

Celebrations broke out in the Gaza Strip after the announcement of the deal, with residents waving flags of Egypt, Palestine, Fatah and Hamas. The official spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal announcement in Cairo.

Daesh 'White Widow' Reportedly Killed in Syria
Chip Chapman, the former head of counterterrorism at the Ministry of Defense, told Press Association that under the U.N. According to the Sun , Jones was last seen fleeing from Raqqa, heading for a town on the border with Iraq .


Struggling with the fallout from the border blockade, Hamas has found it increasingly hard to govern or provide basic services, such as electricity, to Gaza's people.

However in September Hamas agreed that it would give up its power over Gaza, paving the way for this week's reconciliation talks.

He also pointed out that the government will manage the institutions and bodies of all ministries without exception, as well as the full agreement on the management of all crossings, whether with Israel or Egypt, most importantly the Rafah crossing. Specifically, Fatah will reportedly have joint control over a key Gaza border crossing, and will in return lift some punitive sanctions.

The two factions, the same source continued, had also agreed to allow a legal and administrative committee, drawn up earlier in Ramallah, to find solutions to longstanding problems - mostly related to salary shortfalls - faced by Gaza's Hamas-hired civil servants.

Ismail Haniyeh, leader of Hamas, said that a deal had been struck after two days of talks brokered by Egypt.
