The much-anticipated Palestinian Authority unity government is not happening – at least this week.
Sources within the PA say the announcement, which was to take place today (Thursday) is likely to be delayed, according to Israeli government-controlled public radio.
Ramallah-based Fatah spokesperson Jamal al-Mahsan reported there is disagreement among representatives from the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist group and Fatah officials regarding the appointments for ministries in the hoped-for unity government.
Similar difficulties were encountered in exactly the same way during previous attempts to “reconcile” the two factions. All resulted in failure to reach agreement on a resolution, and no unity government has been established since Hamas ousted Fatah from Gaza and seized control of the region in 2007.
