Fatah, Hamas Set to Agree on Unity Government

A top Fatah official says the party is determined to establish a unity government with rival group Hamas despite the criticism by Israelis and the United States.

The senior Fatah official Nabil Shaath made the remark following his meeting with Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza against the backdrop of ongoing talks between Fatah and Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) to agree on the make-up of a unity government, AFP reported on Sunday.

The two Palestinian rival groups Hamas and Fatah are expected to agree the composition of a transitional government of independents by June 6, and the two will stand united against Israel as Tel Aviv has no intention of making peace, Shaath said at a news conference after the meeting.'
