Fatah and Hamas have agreed to form a unity government within five weeks, Al Jazeera reported Wednesday.

According to the report, the agreement was reached during a Tuesday meeting between a Fatah delegation to Gaza led by Azzam al-Ahmad and Hamas leaders, including Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and senior official Musa Abu Marzouk.

Al Jazeera quoted Haniyeh as telling the Fatah delegation that "the possibility for further separation between the two movements is no longer possible given the current circumstances."
