Secret talks aimed at solving internal Palestinian instability are being held between Hamas and Fatah officials, Ma'an reported on Friday. According to the Palestinian news agency, the aim of the negotiations was to reestablish the Palestinian Authority unity government which crumbled several weeks ago. Former Palestinian Authority government spokesman Ghazi Hamad (Hamas) and former Fatah security commander Jibril Rajoub, along with other representatives sent by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, were said to be holding talks over the last few days. Members of other Palestinian factions were reported to be mediating between Fatah and Hamas at the meetings.
