Hamas and the palestinian government to appear together in Gaza

Palestinian PM arrives in Gaza, first visit since 2015

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since Hamas ousted Fatah, the ruling party in the West Bank territories, from Gaza in 2007.

Since 2007, the Authority no longer exercises its authority, limited, on the west bank, a palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 50 years and separated from Gaza by a few tens of kilometers of israeli territory.

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip have been politically divided since 2007, when Hamas wrested control of Gaza from Fatah, ending a short-lived unity government established after Hamas swept the 2006 legislative elections that were ultimately rejected by Fatah, Israel and the worldwide community.

The prime minister said that reconciliation will also oblige donors to meet the pledges they made in Cairo in 2014 toward the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip following Israel's devastating war, according to Wafa.

The decade-long Israeli siege of Gaza-punctuated by bloody assaults-kept Hamas under pressure. However, in an apparent reference to Hamas, he said any Palestinian government "must unambiguously and explicitly commit to non-violence, recognition of the state of Israel, acceptance of previous agreements and obligations between the parties and peaceful negotiations".

Abbas in an TV News Agency that will not tolerate any strong Hamas in Gaza, comparing the Fatah rival to Hezbollah.

Due to Hamas' historical ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, who were overthrown in Egypt in 2013, the group has been accused of planning and orchestrating attacks carried out by the IS affiliate Sinai Province against Egyptian security forces in North Sinai, which borders Gaza.

Hamas's military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, has an estimated 27,000 men under arms. "Achieving Palestinian reconciliation encourages donor nations to meet their commitments towards Gaza", he said, going on to call on the worldwide community to put pressure on Israel to "lift the siege on the Gaza Strip". Any insistence on the part of Egypt or Hamas on a substantial role for Dahlan in the governance of Gaza would probably be a red line for Abbas.

Arriving in the impoverished enclave, Hamdallah said the internationally recognised Palestinian Authority would resume control of Gaza's government in the coming days. This reconciliation appears to be even further along than the 2014 effort, with Hamas willingly disbanding the Gaza government with an eye toward bringing it under control of a unity government, pending an election.

Hamas does not accept Israel's right to exist.

Afterwards government spokesman Yusuf Al Mahmud said a full reconciliation deal would take time. But with all the unknowns, she says, people in Gaza remain deeply sceptical about whether the symbolic ceremonies will lead to any changes on the ground this time around.
