Hamas, Fatah sign deal on Palestinian reconciliation

Two weeks before this, another meeting will be held in Cairo (on November 14) between representatives of all Palestinian factions, the same source said, adding that this meeting would discuss "mechanisms" for implementing the reconciliation agreement.

Negotiators also agreed that control of the Gaza side of the border crossing with Egypt would be handed to Hamdallah's government, said a senior Hamas official who spoke on condition of anonymity, also pending the formal announcement. Cairo also thanked Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas over his real willing to end the division.

"Fatah and Hamas reached an agreement at dawn today upon a generous Egyptian sponsorship", Haniyeh said in a statement.

Palestinian Hamas militants take part in a military show against Israel's newly-installed security measures at the entrance to the al-Aqsa mosque compound, in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip July 20, 2017.

"Israel will examine developments in the field and act accordingly", said a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office.

He added that all Palestinian factions would begin wider negotiations on the formation of a national unity government in the coming two weeks.

Hamas and Fatah movements announced earlier Thursday they reached a reconciliation deal in Cairo, expressing gratitude to Egyptian efforts for mediation role and hosting talks.

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip have remained politically and administratively divided since 2007, when Hamas wrested control of the strip from Fatah following several days of street fighting.

The meetings in Cairo are centred around implementing the 2011 Cairo Agreement between the two political parties, in hopes of ending the 10-year political schism.

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.

The crossing with Egypt may require more time for the handover, with construction work now underway there.
