Palestinians Celebrate Agreement Between Hamas And Al-Fatah

IN PICTURES: Palestinian groups Fatah and Hamas have agreed to a political reconciliation.

Azzam al-Ahmad, head of the Palestinian Authority delegation, said that part of the agreement requires that the Rafah border crossing between Gaza and Egypt will be administered by presidential guards operating under Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas by Nov. 1.

While the full extent of the agreement's details have not been officially reported, it's believed that it also covers issues related to administration and security.
