Palestinian factions reach agreement

Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah have reached an agreement after talks held on Tuesday in the Egyptian capital of Cairo.


"Ismail Haniyeh [Hamas chief] has just announced that an agreement was reached dawn on Thursday between Fatah and Hamas movements under Egyptian auspices," Taher al-Nunu, Haniyeh’s media advisor said in a press statement.

Palestinian media outlets have said that the two factions would hold a press conference later Thursday in Cairo to announce the details of the agreement.

Delegates from Hamas and Fatah started reconciliation talks in the Egyptian capital on Tuesday to heal a decade-long rift.

Cairo is currently leading efforts to heal a political split between Gaza-based Hamas group and the West Bank-based Fatah movement.

Last week, Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah held his first Cabinet meeting in Gaza since the unity government was drawn up in 2014, in a major step towards Palestinian reconciliation.
