‘This will open a new era of relations between Hamas and Fatah’

Senior Fatah and Hamas officials are meeting in Gaza on Tuesday to discuss a joint rally they plan to schedule in the coming days, Saudi television outlet Al-Resalah reported.

Leaders of rival Palestinian movements are expected to speak at the meeting, including Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh.

This will open a new era of relations between Hamas and Fatah,” said Hussam Badran, a senior Hamas official.

A major conflict between the two movements led Hamas to expel Fatah in a bloody coup from the Gaza Strip in 2007.

Since then, several unsuccessful attempts have been made to create a unified Palestinian political front.

Despite a possible speech by Mahmoud Abbas, many Palestinians remain deeply skeptical about the willingness of the two sides to reach an agreement.

Earlier this month, the rival movements pledged to “unite” against Israel’s plan to annex parts of the West Bank. 

During a rare joint press conference, Fatah and Hamas, respectively in power in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, had said they wanted to open “a new page.”
