Palestinian government officially takes over Gaza

Palestinian government officially takes over Gaza

The terrorist group's Politburo Chief, Ismail Haniyeh, said in an interview with Egyptian television that "there are two groups of weapons: There are the weapons of the government, the police and security services", The Jerusalem Post reported Tuesday.

The Palestinian unity government held its first cabinet meeting in Gaza Strip on Tuesday since October 2014, which marked the government of President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah party, officially reached an accommodation with the Islamic Hamas movement which is occupying the Gaza Strip.

"Allow me to tell you that today the entire world looks forward to your efforts in achieving reconciliation between the Palestinian people and appreciates your resolve to overcome all obstacles that have caused discord and division". But with all the unknowns, she says, people in Gaza remain deeply sceptical about whether the symbolic ceremonies will lead to any changes on the ground this time around.

The Gaza Strip has been under siege by Israel since 2007.

The major bone of contention in the implementation of the truce process would be the future of Hamas's armed wing and its weapons.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already warned his government will not accept any reconciliation deal unless Hamas disarms and recognises Israel's right to exist. Why did Liberman order Defense Ministry officials to arrange for the efficient entry of the Palestinian delegation into Gaza?

Hamas retains a powerful military wing that has fought three wars with Israel since 2008 and Hamas officials reject the possibility of dissolving it.

This development is a diplomatic blow to Israel, which has been opposing Palestine moves to join worldwide bodies. Almost 100 Israelis have been killed and thousands injured.

"We will solve all outstanding issues in consultation with all Palestinian factions". "The Palestinian cause has been one of Egypt's top priorities during meetings with world leaders or through Egypt's participation in global forums", Sisi said.

"Whoever wants to make such a reconciliation, our understanding is very clear: recognize the State of Israel, disband the Hamas military arm, sever the connection with Iran - which calls for our destruction", Netanyahu said.

"We are not prepared to accept bogus reconciliations in which the Palestinian side apparently reconciles at the expense of our existence", Netanyahu said. "This approach is being resuscitated by the new administration, in collaboration with Israel, whose right-wing government has increasingly close relations with the Arab Gulf states".
