PA approves Hamas celebration in West Bank

The Palestinian Authority on Monday granted Hamas permission to mount a 25th anniversary celebration in the West Bank, Ma'an News Agency reported.
The festival, to take place on Thursday, will feature speeches from Hamas leaders. Hamas had earlier approved plans for Fatah, its rival that controls the PA, to celebrate its own anniversary in Gaza.
The most recent sign of reconciliation between the factions follows Fatah's participation in the Gaza version of Hamas's 25th anniversary celebration on Saturday.
