Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein said Thursday following a call for unity between Hamas and Fatah that there was no difference in opinion between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas.

Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal hailed a new Palestinian partnership Thursday when they met in Cairo to discuss a reconciliation pact signed seven months ago, AFP reported.

Edelstein said Abbas accepted Hamas aggression and the terrorist methods that the group uses against Israel, including the killing of innocent civilians.
