  • Hamas Agreed Not to Carry out Terror, Rocket Attacks Against Israel

Also as part of the agreement, the Palestinian Authority can not take any new steps regarding Israel.

There has been a period of relative calm between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip since 2014's confrontation between the two, with the militant group instead focused on carrying out acts of violence in the West Bank and Israel.

It was a sobering reality check for a group that, despite years of fiery defiance and arms supplies from Iran, can not rule Gaza without help from Fatah, the rival faction that controls the Palestinian Authority and was driven out of Gaza in violent clashes 10 years ago.

The deal includes 3,000 members of the West Bank-based Palestinian Authority's police force redeploying to Gaza, a member of the negotiating team said on condition of anonymity.

Hamas, which controls Gaza and has fought Israel three times, said it was ready to cede control of Gaza's borders and allow the rival Palestinian Authority to take over the day-to-day running of the territory.

Attempts at reconciliation in recent years fell apart.

On Thursday, Hamas and Fatah signed a landmark reconciliation deal in Cairo aimed at ending ten years of crippling inter-Palestinian political division.

The problem, Deeney thinks, is that Arsenal don't fancy it when the going gets tough. 'Well, I'm not one to tell Mr. The Hornets won the match after falling behind to a Per Mertesacker header in the first half.


Palestinian media reported that the two sides agreed to form a committee to solve, within four months, one very local problem that has dogged previous attempts at reconciliation: what to do about Hamas bureaucrats who will be out of a job when the Palestinian Authority resumes its rule in Gaza.

With Hamas in control, conditions in Gaza deteriorated.

The figure is a fraction of the number of police officers employed by Hamas, the Islamist movement that runs the Gaza Strip.

Hamas has repeatedly refused to disarm and dismantle the 25,000-strong fighting force it controls in the Gaza Strip.

Speaking Tuesday morning to Israel Radio, former PA foreign minister Ashraf al-Ajrami, who is considered close to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, said he had heard that the Egyptians demanded a ceasefire from Hamas as the reconciliation negotiations continue.

Under the terms of the deal, the Ramallah-based Palestinian unity government will assume political and administrative responsibility for the Gaza Strip no later than December 1. In the agreement signed Thursday, it states the both sides, including the terror group, seek a state "on all the Palestinian territories occupied in 1967, with Jerusalem as its capital".
