Hamas and Fatah Working Towards Gaza Elections
The Central Elections Commission (CEC) has been granted permission on Monday to begin working in Gaza by the Hamas led government in order to prepare for elections. After years of rivalry, Hamas and Fatah are working together towards fresh elections that have been stalled for a number of years.
The division between the two groups has lasted five years, with Hamas governing Gaza while Fatah controlled the West Bank. Many hope that this division is coming to an end.
The International Middle East Media Center is running an URGENT online fundraising campaign.
