The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

GAZA CITY: Ri­val Pales­tinian fac­tions Ha­mas and Fatah reached an agree­ment yes­ter­day on end­ing a decade-long split fol­low­ing talks me­di­ated by Egypt in Cairo, with Pales­tinian Author­ity pres­i­dent Mah­mud Ab­bas call­ing it a “fi­nal” ac­cord. Ab­bas said he con­sid­ered it a “fi­nal agree­ment to end the di­vi­sion” – though many de­tails re­main to be re­solved and pre­vi­ous rec­on­cil­i­a­tion at­tempts have re­peat­edly failed. Ha­mas leader Is­mail Haniya’s of­fice said “an agree­ment was reached be­tween Ha­mas and Fatah un­der Egyp­tian spon­sor­ship”. – AFP
