Hamas official accuses U.S. of 'blatant interference in Palestinian affairs'

But now Hamas appears willing to strike a deal with the PA - led by rival Palestinian faction Fatah - that would allow a Palestinian unity government to resume control of the embattled territory.

These demands include the cutting of all ties with Iran and the handing over of two Israeli civilians and the remains of Israeli soldiers believed to have been killed during Israel's 2014 military onslaught on Gaza.

"It is a blatant interference into the internal Palestinian affairs and aims at putting a stick into the wheel of reconciliation", adding "Hamas reiterates that it will carry on with implementing all the steps for reconciliation", Hamas statement said.

Hamas must disarm and recognize the state of Israel if it wishes to play any role in the Palestinian government, United States' Special Envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt said Thursday.

Jenca said that the agreement does not contain any provisions related to elections, the formation of a national unity government, or the disarming of Hamas.

"There are no secret clauses in the reconciliation understanding, and what the occupation published on the resistance halting in the West Bank is not true", said senior Hamas spokesperson Husam Badran, in an interview with the Palestinian news site Quds Network.

In remarks in Cairo immediately after the deal was signed last week, the chief Hamas negotiator, Saleh al-Arouri, said Hamas signed the agreement in order that all Palestinian forces can "work together against the Zionist enterprise".

Israel and Hamas have fought three wars since 2008, and the Gaza Strip has been under an Israeli blockade for more than a decade.

This past month, thousands of Israeli and Palestinian women united in a two-week march for peace that brought forward participants of all ages and backgrounds.

Of course, no such explosion could be expected without the support of Russian Federation and its allies Iran and Qatar, as Israel's United Nations ambassador Danny Danon suggested when he described Iran's terror network and its efforts to destabilize the region.
