LEAKED: THE SIX CLAUSES OF THE FATAH-HAMAS DEAL

Source: Jerusalem Post

The agreement included a preamble.

It says, among other things, that the agreement aims to achieve Palestinian unity for the sake of “ending the occupation, establishing a sovereign Palestinian state on all of the lands occupied in 1967 with Jerusalem as its capital, and the return of refugees.”

Hamas issued a policy document earlier this year in which it said establishing a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines is “a national consensus.” However, in the same document, Hamas said it refuses to recognize Israel and rejects any alternative to “liberating Palestine from the river to the sea.”

The full text of the agreement Hamas and Fatah announced in Cairo on Thursday was leaked on social media over the weekend. The agreement sought to partially restore the Palestinian Authority’s presence in the Gaza Strip.

At a press conference on Thursday and in official statements, the two parties as well as Egypt, which helped broker the agreement, only revealed part of the deal, causing confusion for journalists and other observers.

After Hamas ousted the Fatah-dominated PA from Gaza in 2007, the PA ordered its some 55,000 employees in the enclave not to report to work. In response, Hamas appointed some 40,000 new employees, who have run Gaza’s ministries and other government institutions for more than 10 years.

Hamas has said it wants the PA to absorb of all of its employees onto its payroll. Meanwhile, Fatah has said it wants to resolve the issue, but cautioned that it cannot add every Hamas appointee to its payroll.

3) Border crossings in Gaza with Israel and Egypt will be transferred to the PA by November 1.

Ahmad on Thursday told a press conference at the Egyptian Intelligence Directorate in Cairo that the Kerem Shalom and Erez crossings between Gaza and Israel would be handed over the PA by November 1. However, He said the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt would likely be transferred to the PA later than November 1.

4) PA security leaders will go to Gaza to discuss ways and mechanisms to rebuild the security services with relevant parties.

According to Ahmad, the two parties agreed that the US-trained PA Presidential Guard will control the Egyptian-Gazan border. However, it is unclear if they reached any other security arrangements.

A major point of disagreement on security between the two parties is the future of Hamas’s armed wing, the Izzadin Kassam Brigades. PA President Mahmoud Abbas has demanded that Izzadin Kassam hand over its weapons, while Hamas’s leadership has said this will not happen.

Hamas’s armed wing has some 25,000 members, who have thousands of weapons including guns and rockets.

5) A meeting in Cairo will take place in the first week of December to evaluate the implementation of what was agreed between Hamas and Fatah.

6) All the Palestinian factions that signed the Cairo reconciliation agreement in 2011, will meet on November 14 in the Egyptian capital to discuss the 2011 agreement.

The 2011 Cairo agreement deals with holding general elections within one year, reforming the PLO, and other issues.

In addition to the six clauses, the agreement included a preamble.

It says, among other things, that the agreement aims to achieve Palestinian unity for the sake of “ending the occupation, establishing a sovereign Palestinian state on all of the lands occupied in 1967 with Jerusalem as its capital, and the return of refugees.”

Hamas issued a policy document earlier this year in which it said establishing a Palestinian state along the 1967 lines is “a national consensus.” However, in the same document, Hamas said it refuses to recognize Israel and rejects any alternative to “liberating Palestine from the river to the sea.”
