Palestinian Unity Government

Ending bitter relationship of seven years between two main factions of palestine , Fatah and Hamas declared forming unity government. This unity government will reunite Gaza and west Bank under single political leadership for the first time since 2007.

Since 2007 West Bank has been controlled by Fatah while Gaza has been under control of Hamas when after 2006 Palestine election Hamas won and took full control over Gaza strip.

As per a draft , the new government will be headed by Mr. Rami Hamdallah and will abide by the principles laid down by the Middle east peace quartet in that it will recognize Israel , reject violence and abide by all existing agreements .

Israel which always rejected any government backed by Hamas and is likely to unwelcome the new government. It has previously threatened punitive sanction against any government backed by Hamas.
