Fatah: Disarmament of Hamas not on dialogue table

Report: Hamas refuses Fatah's request to disarm, will continue terrorist activity from West Bank

Internal differences within Fatah over reconciliation with Hamas

Since Hamas ousted the Palestinian Authority from Gaza in 2007, a Hamas-controlled government has ruled Gaza, while a PA government has dominated Palestinian cities in the West Bank.

The West Bank and the Gaza Strip have been politically divided since 2007, when Hamas wrested control of Gaza from Fatah, ending a short-lived unity government established after Hamas swept the 2006 legislative elections that were ultimately rejected by Fatah, Israel and the worldwide community.

Spokesperson for Palestinian faction says "weapons of resistance" is a red line amid ongoing reconciliation process.

Earlier Monday, Khalil al-Hayya, a leading Hamas member, told reporters that Egyptian officials had agreed last week to dispatch a delegation from Egypt's General Intelligence Directorate to the blockaded Gaza Strip.

During those meetings, the Iranian officials pledged to increase their military support for the Gaza-based terror group.

He added that Hamas had called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to "conduct the necessary consultations with all parties to hold comprehensive elections simultaneously".

The reconciliation agreement signed on October 12 in Cairo does not specify a future for the Qassam Brigades. Fatah officials have demanded that the PA control all weapons in the Strip, while Hamas officials have stated that their armed wing, the Izzeldin Kassam Brigades, will not be disarmed.

"The [PA] government until this moment, financially, administratively and security-wise, has not been set up [in Gaza] more than five percent", Palestinian Authority Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh said on Sunday. Israel captured all three areas in the 1967 Six-Day War, although it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.
