“The agreement will allow the national unity government to fully carry out its tasks in both the Gaza strip and the West Bank of Jordan,” the head of the Fatah delegation said.
Palestinian national unity government would start its work no later than December 1, Egypt's state information service said.
Moreover, the two reconciling rivals have agreed to make the unity government responsible for the Rafah border crossing in Gaza on November, 1, two sources said on Thursday.
In early October, the Palestinian Unity Government held its first session in Gaza since 2014 as part of implementation of the arrangements aiming to settle the long-standing conflict between the Palestinian parties.
The Palestinians have been seeking to create their own state on the territories of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank for decades. The conflict between Hamas and Fatah escalated in 2007. Since then, Hamas has been governing the Gaza Strip, while Fatah maintained control of the West Bank. Over the years, repeated attempts have been made to achieve reconciliation between the two parties, but all efforts have failed so far.
