Fatah and Hamas have reached a reconciliation agreement following the talks between the two rival Palestinian factions in Cairo, Hamas' political bureau chief announced this morning.

"Fatah and Hamas reached an agreement at dawn today upon a generous Egyptian sponsorship", Mr Haniyeh said.

Al-Nuno gave no further details on the content of the deal.

A Hamas official told Reuters that details are expected to be released at a news conference in Cairo.

The negotiations on Egyptian interim finder began last Tuesday.

Egypt has helped the two movements to form a power-sharing unity government in Gaza and the West Bank.

Palestine's ambassador to Egypt and its Permanent Representative to the Arab League Jamal Shobaki also said that President Mahmoud Abbas has issued instructions to the Fatah delegation to make every effort to achieve national reconciliation and end the division.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said on Sunday the Egypt-backed reconciliation talks between the PA and Hamas are "preparation" for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

Both rivals hope the deal's proposed deployment of security personnel from the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority to Gaza's borders will encourage Egypt and Israel to lift their tight restrictions at border crossings, a much needed step to help Gaza revive its economy.

"The talks are positive and the Egyptian side is even-handed", he said, according to the Palestinian Information Centre.

Under the deal, 3,000 Fatah security officers will join the Gaza police force. The loss damaged Abbas' credibility in the eyes of the West and Israel, after years of being their main Palestinian diplomatic counterpart.

Last week, Palestinian Authority prime minister Rami Hamdallah visited Gaza for the first time since 2015 and his ministers officially took control of government departments in the territory.
