Islamic Jihad's Secretary-general said Monday that the organization will not pose any opposition to the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement.
"If both rivals reach agreement, we will not oppose any step related to the government as long as our solid principles are not interfered with," Ramadan Abdullah Shallah said in an interview with the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency.
