GAZA, April 27 Palestinian President Mahmoud
Abbas's Fatah movement and its rival Hamas said on Wednesday
they had resolved their deep divisions, opening the way for a
unity government and national elections.
The deal, which took many officials by surprise, was
thrashed out in Egypt and followed a series of secret meetings.
"The two sides signed initial letters on an agreement. All
points of differences have been overcome," Taher Al-Nono, the
Hamas government spokesman in Gaza, told Reuters. He added that
Cairo would shortly invite both sides to a signing ceremony.
