Officials from the Palestinian Authority said that the Palestinian factions are scheduled to meet on Tuesday in Cairo for reconciliation talks, according to Agence France-Presse.
An Egyptian-brokered reconciliation agreement was signed between the two rival parties of Hamas and Fatah ending a decade-long split.
Member of the executive committee at the Palestinian Authority Ahmed Majdalni said that “the meeting that will take at the 21st of this month was planned, and will discuss the content of the 2011 reconciliation agreement, which is mainly about the security, government, social reconciliation, and the freedoms.”
The unity government is different from the one headed by Prime Minister Ramy Hamadallah, as the latter will include all of the Palestinian Factions.
However, the United States asked for disarming of Hamas in Gaza as a condition for it being a part of the Palestinian unity government, but the condition was rejected by both Hamas and the Palestinian factions.
