GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- A PLO committee is to visit the Gaza Strip this week in an attempt to finalize a reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas, a statement from the office of Gaza's prime minister said Sunday.

The statement said a meeting was confirmed in a Sunday morning telephone call between senior Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad and Gaza PM Ismail Haniyeh.

Haniyeh promised to put forth a sincere effort to implement agreements between Fatah and Hamas reached in Cairo and Doha.

Regular phone calls between Fatah and Hamas leaders have been taking place in recent weeks, focusing on the subject of reconciliation between the two factions, the statement said.

The rift between the two Palestinian movements began in 2006, when Hamas won the Palestinian legislative elections.

In the following year, clashes erupted between Fatah and Hamas, leaving Hamas in control of the Strip and Fatah in control of parts of the occupied West Bank.

The groups have made failed attempts at national reconciliation for years, most recently in 2012, when they signed two agreements -- one in Cairo and a subsequent one in Doha -- which have yet to be put into practice.

- Neither Hamas nor the PLO will give-up power to the other, just as Syria's Assad will not give-up power to the Syrian rebels, so - There will be No Reconciliation, and just more useless talks, equally as useless as those between the PLO and the State of Israel.

#1 Tibi: No one in Hamas or the PLO has to give up power to the other, what they all need to do is think about the future of the people they proclaim to serve and in whose interests they were elected. The time for power struggles is over & the world is changing. Hamas now has the chance to finally have their voice heard & bring their perspective, thoughts & ideas to the negotiations. This is their chance to try to bring peace to Gaza & Palestine. They having nothing to lose, but a lot to gain.

The problem lies in the hardness of hearts between the two parties and pride not to recognize the mistake of the parties note that the interest of the Palestinians above all their accounts

I want to be assured the PLO committee delegation in an attempt to finalize a reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas, will not be holding meetings anywhere near Gaza city's high rise rooftops.

Jerusalem, the occupation, the refugees and the struggle for liberation must be paramount to partisan interests and affiliations. Unity of all Palestinian factions is vital if we are to liberate our land and regain our rights. Unite my compatriots and confront our enemies as one. To all Palestinians everywhere please engage. The future of our land and many Palestinian generations to come are at stake. United we will prevail. Fragmented and divided we will fail.
