GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said on Thursday evening that Hamas had agreed to the details of the reunification of security forces with Fatah, resolving a key obstacle in the implementation of the national reconciliation agreement.

"We agreed on all the details of the security file, we are committed to what we signed. We will not allow the return of security disorder to the Gaza Strip," Haniyeh said in a graduation ceremony in the besieged coastal enclave.

"We will not give up the weapon of resistance, and we will not forsake resistance," Haniyeh added, stressing that Hamas "will not depart the position of manliness and dignity and will remain loyal soldiers of Palestine."

Haniyeh added that no employees in Gaza will be fired after the unity government is formed, explaining that "we will work on the basis of partnership, and will build security forces in the West Bank and Gaza."

The development of two independent Palestinian security forces -- one under Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the other under the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in the West Bank -- has been a key issue as both parties attempt to work out a national reconciliation plan agreed upon in late April.

So far,everything sounds very amicable.The issue of loyalty to ending Israel's illegal occupation &collective punishment is paramount.Colonial Israel has methodically implemented that cruel system to destroy Palestine.That's the umbrella that's over everyone's heads nationally&internationally.I hope Fatah/Hamas rivalry will see that any factional squabbles are miniature by comparison.I want to know what who PA/Fatah are MORE loyal to?Factional power?Or Palestinian FREEDOM,long overdue? SUMUD!!!

So Hamas will keep its army, security personnel, rockets and other arms. Abbas will keep his military force. The two will be separate. This is what the Palestinians call unity. Israel's leader Ben Gurion did not permit the Irgun or the LHI to keep their own armies. He attacked and destroyed an Irgun ship to create an unified force under the command of one government. He disbanded both the Irgun and LHI so that they could only compete in the political arena, which they did.

What a nice picture of PM Haniyeh, looking very relaxed & well. We are so pleased with the way things have turned out. I am sure if the W.Bank needs any of our brave Hamas soldiers, they will be happy to help out there. It's good that Fatah finally seems to be focusing what on what Hamas have always wanted, which is 'freedom for Palestine'. I guess having reached the end of the road (crumbling empires) they finally realised what dignity meant. Loyalty to Palestine is most important now, for all.
