Hamas has said it is determined to continue with the Palestinian reconciliation process at any cost, and confirmed that it is confident of its ability to resolve all outstanding issues of disagreements in light of the presence of new leaders of the movement who were not part of the division, as well as the role of Egypt in the convergence of views.
Hossam Badran, the official handling the issue of reconciliation within Hamas, told Al-Hayat newspaper that: “Even if unilaterally, Hamas is determined to end the division.”
Badran told the newspaper that Hamas is ready to provide all the necessary tools for the success of the reconciliation. New leaders who were not part of the division are currently working on this file.
The statements of the Hamas leaders all confirmed their desire to move forward in the reconciliation.
Despite the declarations and assurances of the continuation of the reconciliation, the implementation of this initiative on the ground is still facing many difficulties; two government bodies in Gaza have been rejected by their presidents and were deprived of their posts.
Reports also predict that obstacles to the reconciliation deal may cause the initiative to take a lot of time than previously expected.
The file of security and staff in this sector, which account to 17 thousand, is one of the many challenges facing this reconciliation.
