Palestinian Reconciliation Nearly Collapsed

Thursday, April 23, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- A year after rival Palestinian nationalist movements Hamas and Fatah agreed to end their bitter divisions, the unity deal they signed appears to be on the brink of collapse, AFP reported.

This week, a ministerial delegation from the Ramallah-based consensus government headed to the Gaza Strip, the stronghold of Hamas, for what was to be a week-long visit focused on resolving a long-running dispute over employees.

But they stayed only one day, ordered home by prime minister Rami Hamdallah as the scope of the row became clear.

During their brief visit to Gaza, the delegation members did not leave their hotel, with Hamas saying it was "by choice".

But Mahmud al-Zaq, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), said it was due to the "thuggish" and "terrorist" methods of Hamas.
