Hamas: Deal reached with Palestinian rival Fatah
The two sides, meeting in Cairo for talks brokered by Egypt, said in a joint statement Thursday that the West Bank-based authority would by early December regain full administration of Gaza, which has been under Hamas control since 2007.
The announcement comes after representatives from Hamas and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority (PA) convened in Cairo on Tuesday to implement a unity agreement that was signed in 2011 but not put into action, Al Jazeera reported.
In Israel's first reaction, a government official said Hamas must disarm and recognise Israel under the deal.
"All the measures taken recently will end very shortly", Zakaria al-Agha, a senior Fatah leader in the Gaza Strip, told AFP.
Fayez Abu Eita, a spokesman for Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah Movement and member of its delegation in Cairo, said details would be announced at the news conference.
He said the unity government would "run all institutions without exception", including all border crossings with Israel and in Rafah, Gaza's only access point with Egypt.
"We must close the page of division forever to unite the efforts of the Palestinian people with all its forces, specially Fatah and Hamas, so that we can confront the occupation in order to realize the Palestinian dream of ending the occupation and establishing our sovereign state with Jerusalem as its capital", he said.
It has fought three wars with Israel since 2008 and the blockaded Gaza Strip has faced deteriorating humanitarian conditions.
The crossing has remained largely closed in recent years.
Over the past decade, each side deepened control over its territory, making it increasingly hard to forge compromises and repeated attempts at reconciliation failed.
The publicly-released parts of the agreement did not specify what would happen to Hamas' armed wing.
The latest reconciliation efforts come as US President Donald Trump has sought to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and met separately with Abbas and Netanyahu on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY last month.
