The government in the Gaza Strip announced on Sunday seven new cabinet ministers, after its reshuffle received final approval from lawmakers, Ma'an News Agency reported on Sunday.

Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told MPs the reshuffle was necessary after delaying the move in the attempt to achieve national reconciliation."Winds blew counter to the ships’ desire, and reconciliation was postponed," Haniyeh was quoted as saying.

According to Israel Radio, Haniyeh has also appointed a new deputy, Ziad A - Zaza.
