Right-Wing Israeli minster, Bennett, will demand cutting ties with the PA

  • Palestinians take part in a rally to support of the Palestinian reconciliation in Gaza city on 10 October 2017

Days after rival Palestinian factions signed a unity deal under the auspices of Cairo, the text of the accord has been leaked. One of the key sticking points will be the fate of Hamas's 25,000-strong military wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades.

Reconciliation could also pose a dilemma for worldwide efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal since Hamas has not recognized Israel, unlike the Abbas-led Palestine Liberation Organization.

Hamas finally reached the pragmatic decision to make peace with Fateh and thus put an end to the hardships endured by the people of Gaza. From now, any Israeli cooperation with Abbas is cooperation with Hamas. But instead, the global community should have tried to "pull Hamas into a dialogue", Blair said in an interview for Donald Macintyre's "Gaza: Preparing for Dawn", which is set to be released in November.

It remains unclear now how the future of Hamas's military will affect continuing negotiations between the two sides, but neither has openly backed down from their original positions.

The agreement requires Hamas to refrain from any activity that would foment a confrontation with Israel, Haaretz reported, citing the London-based Arabic language newspaper Asharq Alawsat.

Jack Wilshere in Gareth Southgate's plans for the World Cup
"We have another game on Sunday [against Lithuania] and we need to keep doing what we're doing and working hard". In an England shirt, surrounded by players of similar mediocrity, their limitations become all too apparent.


Attempts at reconciliation in recent years fell apart.

Hamas seized control of Gaza from Abbas's Fatah in a violent coup in 2007.

Arouri is believed by Israel to have planned numerous terrorist attacks including a kidnapping-murder of three Israeli teens in the West Bank, considered among the main catalysts of the 2014 Israel-Hamas war.

However, at the same time, Hamas has said it is willing to accept a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is expected to head a meeting for his party's (Fatah) Central Committee in Ramallah Sunday, for the first time since the national reconciliation deal was singed between Fatah and Islamic Hamas movement in Cairo last Thursday.

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.
