Fatah-Hamas Unity Government in Five Weeks?


In secret Gaza meetings officials say the decision has been reached to form unity government for 'one national program' as peace talks crumble.

Representatives of Fatah and Hamas have reportedly decided to form a unity government within the "next five weeks" according to officials from the groups on Wednesday. The agreement was made during a meeting in Gaza on Tuesday between Hamas and members of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction, the main component of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
