Challenges facing Palestinian reconciliation?

This edition of the program is about the new round of reconciliation talks between Hamas and Fatah. The discussion is on whether the reconciliation talks have any chance of success; Israeli position; Palestinians expectations of this reconciliation; Saudi agenda regarding resistance and so on.

On November 21, Palestinian factions (mainly Fatah and Hamas) will hold national reconciliation talks in Cairo to sort out any thorny issues before the full implementation of the Palestinian reconciliation deal.

This comes as Fatah will commemorate the 13th anniversary of the death of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat for the first time in Gaza since the split began with rival Hamas party in 2007. Both factions hope that the full implantation of the national reconciliation will be completed by the end of the current month.

In recent days, Hamas has handed over the control of the Rafah crossing with Egypt to Fatah, as well as the Erez crossing with Israel. But Israel recently launched an attack on the Gaza border, killing 12 resistance fighters belonging to both Hamas and Islamic Jihad and is still withholding the bodies of 5 in the hope of exchanging them for the 2 Israeli soldiers, who were captured during the 2014 Israeli war on Gaza.
