Palestine: Hamas, Fatah to discuss Palestinian reconciliation in Doha

By Ola Attalah

 

GAZA CITY (AA) – Hamas and Fatah representatives are set to meet in Qatari capital Doha on Sunday to discuss implementation of a reconciliation deal signed in 2014 between the rival Palestinian movements.

“This meeting will aim to establish viable mechanisms for applying the reconciliation agreement,” Hamas spokesman in the Gaza Strip Sami Abu Zuhri told Anadolu Agency.

The Hamas delegation, he said, would be headed by leading group member Moussa Abu Marzouq.

The Fatah delegation, meanwhile, is expected to be headed up by leading Fatah member Azzam al-Ahmed.

Last week, Jamal Muhassan, a member of Fatah’s central committee, told Anadolu Agency that Fatah officials had recently held several informal meetings in Turkey and Qatar with their Hamas counterparts.

In April of 2014, Hamas and Fatah representatives signed a long-awaited reconciliation agreement that called for the formation of a Palestinian unity government tasked with overseeing Palestinian legislative and presidential polls.

Although the unity government was unveiled two months later, it has yet to take on a governing role in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, while the relationship between Hamas and Fatah remains beset by a host of outstanding differences.
