GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Fatah is working on a list of affiliates in Gaza jails to be released by the Hamas government as part of conciliatory measures between the rival governments, officials said.

Fatah has prepared a list to go before a committee to verify the inmates, Fatah official Yahya Rabah told Ma'an.

He reiterated the importance of the decision taken by the Hamas administration in Gaza to release Fatah-affiliated prisoners in order to push forward the long-stalled reconciliation deal between the parties.

"We need to see those men back in their homes and among their families to end a dark period of the split," he said.

Both Gaza and the West Bank government pledged last week to grant amnesties to those linked to their 2007 split.

In Gaza, a security official said Thursday that those linked to killings during the violent fighting leading up to the split would not be included in the amnesty.

Member of the bipartisan reconciliation committee Yasser al-Wadiyeh said the group had secured pledges from the parties to consider those killed as martyrs and provide compensation.

Fatah official Atef Abu Said said 56 party affiliates are in Gaza's jails for political reasons, and estimated that hundreds of members and employees of the security services had fled Gaza after 2007 when Hamas took control. Exiles are also expected to be pardoned under the deal.
