Middle crisis continues as Palestinian groups Hamas and Fatah agree on unification deal. Both Fatah and Hamas have been waging war against Israel for years. Analysts assess that these militant groups could be planning a new strategy against Israel.
Fatah and Hamas leaders have agreed in Cairo to renew efforts to implement a two-year-old unity deal. The agreement followed talks, the first in 18 months, between Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah and exiled Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, according to BBC news.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal met in Cairo and they agreed to implement unity deal. Hamas and Fatah leaders agreed at talks in Cairo, although it was unclear if the deal would extend beyond holding more talks. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas represents the secular Fatah movement based in the West Bank and Khaled Mashaal represents the religious Islamic Hamas group that controls the Gaza Strip, according to Ynet news.
The two main groups that have been striving for control within the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, have been holding meetings in Cairo, Egypt to discuss healing the breech and resolving their historic differences. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal are trying to resolve the conflict between the two factions. While Hamas is much more publicly outspoken in their commitment to Israel’s destruction, they are not alone in their objectives. It was Palestinian President Abbas (AKA: Abu Mazen) who provided the funding for the Black September terrorists who conducted the deadly operation that killed 11 Israeli athletes and coaches during the Munich Olympics in 1972. He claims not to have known that the money was to be used for that nefarious purpose. Israel’s enemies are gathering to plot against her, just as the surrounding nations did in antiquity.
