Sources told Al-Mayadeen that Hamas has agreed to implement the 2017 agreement between the parties, on the condition that the sanctions against the Gaza-based Palestinian terror group be lifted and that its employees receive salaries.

Hamas has asked that a national unity government be formed within 45 days, and that elections be held in no less than six months, the report said.
