Hamas accepts reconciliation demands

September 17, 2017

Hamas says it has accepted reconciliation conditions demanded by its rival, President Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestine's Hamas group has agreed to talks with rival Fatah movement, to dissolve the Gaza administrative committee and hold general elections, the group says.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Western-backed Palestine Authority, controlled by Fatah, fought a war with Hamas over Gaza in 2007, which led to Hamas taking over the territory. Attempts to reconcile the two and form a power-sharing unity government in Gaza and the West Bank have failed.
