Hamas has agreed to talks with rival Fatah movement, to dissolve the Gaza administrative committee and hold general elections, the group said in a statement on Sunday.

President Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority, controlled by Fatah, fought a war with Hamas over Gaza in 2007, which led to Hamas taking over the territory. Attempts to reconcile the two and form a power-sharing unity government in Gaza and the West Bank have failed.
