Palestinians celebrate the agreement between Hamas in Gaza and the Palestinian authority of October 12th 2017 in Egypt. The Egyptians were an active part of the negotiations . Transfer of power will take place on December 1rst.Separation lasted 10 years.

Palestinian Authority, an internationally recognized entity prefiguring an independent Palestinian state, will have to assume all responsibilities in the Gaza Strip by that date, the statement said. Both sides give themselves until this date to settle all their different, adds the text. A new meeting is scheduled in Cairo on November 21rst. The details of the agreement were not disclosed in the statements made to the journalists. In what would be a spectacular manifestation of this rapprochement, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to visit Gaza soon. This was announced to the Agence France Presse by Zakaria al-Agha, leader of the party of Mr. Abbas, Fatah. Another indication of reconciliation is that 3,000 police of the Palestinian Authority will be deployed in the Gaza Strip and on the borders with Israel and Egypt.

This came from a senior official involved in the negotiations on condition of anonymity. In addition, Abbas is expected to lift, in the near future, the financial measures taken in 2017 to force Hamas into conciliation, al-Agha said. Abbas's visit to the Gaza Strip is reported to be the first since 2007. Henceforth, a Palestinian leaving Gaza for Israel or the West Bank will not be interrogated by Hamas intelligence services. A Palestinian entering Gaza would not be subject to exorbitant import taxes and other fees imposed by Hamas. The parties must also address the fate of tens of thousands of civil servants recruited since 2007 by Hamas. It is not enough to simply say that these actions were part of reconciliation. Hamas's commitment to national reconciliation has never been as strong as this in the past.
