The rival Hamas and Fatah movements on Tuesday completed an agreement over a plan that implicitly recognizes Israel, ending weeks of acrimonious negotiations, a top official said. "We have an agreement over the document," said Ibrahim Abu Najah, coordination of the "national dialogue" over the proposal. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has been trying to coax his Hamas rivals into endorsing the document, which calls for a Palestinian state alongside Israel. He has endorsed the plan as a way to end crippling economic sanctions against the Hamas-led Palestinian government and pave the way to reopening peace talks.
