Responding to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's statement in Washington that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "tear up" the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh announced Wednesday that "we will tear up the occupation."

In a speech in Gaza reported on by Ma'an News Agency, Haniyeh said the unity deal "must be implemented honestly and accurately." He also applauded the Nakba Day efforts of regional Arabs to breach Israel's borders and called on protesters to radically increase their numbers next year.
