Hamas, Fatah officials to meet in Moscow for talks on potential unity government, Gaza reconstruction

Representatives of Hamas and Fatah will meet in Moscow tomorrow to discuss the formation of a unified government and the rebuilding of Gaza, the RIA Novosti state news agency reports, citing the Palestinian ambassador to Russia.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov also confirms to RIA Novosti that such a meeting is planned.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said Monday he was resigning to allow for the formation of a broad consensus among Palestinians about political arrangements after the conclusion of Israel’s war against terror group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The move came amid growing US pressure on PA President Mahmoud Abbas to shake up the Authority, which would allow it to take a greater role in ruling postwar Gaza.
