Hamas reconciles with Palestinian Authority in Gaza

The Trump administration has stressed the importance of committing to nonviolence.

Hamas political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh Tuesday said his movement will not hand over its weapons adding that the resistance against Israel will continue.

Netanyahu's statements came as Palestinian Authority (PA) Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah visited Gaza for the first time since 2014, with the Fatah-ruled PA and Hamas initiating the first steps in forming joint governance.

Abbas has tried numerous times without success to fix the rift, in part to counter Israeli assertions that peace negotiations are pointless because he can't ensure that any treaty will also hold in Gaza.

Bennett said that three conditions would be set as conditions for continuing to transfer funds to the PA, including the return of two bodies of Israeli soldiers killed in the 2014 war on Gaza.

More than two million people live in impoverished Gaza, which has been blockaded by Israel and Egypt for years.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke out on Tuesday against efforts by the rival Palestinian factions Fatah and the Gaza-ruling terror group Hamas to form a unity government. The Cabinet members later went to the offices of each of their ministries to formally assume control from Hamas. "There is an opportunity for achieving peace in the region". No Hamas officials took part. Almost 100 Israelis have been killed and thousands injured.

Fawzy traveled to Gaza to meet the Palestinian government, following a meeting in Ramallah with Abbas.

Israel in the past has opposed any role in Palestinian government for Hamas, which achieved global notoriety in the 1990s by launching suicide bomb attacks in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

He explained, "Whoever wants to reconcile, our position is very simple, Recognize the state of Israel, dismantle Hamas' military wing, cut ties with Iran that calls for our destruction, these are very clear things that we have previously and clearly stated".

"I say on my behalf and on behalf of the brothers in Fatah and all the Palestinian factions that we are ready to pay any price for the success of Palestinian national reconciliation", he said.
