Gaza factions to join rally supporting UN bid

Nov. 27, 2012 9:07 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 2, 2012 11:21 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – Representatives of all Palestinian factions on Tuesday held a meeting in Gaza City during which all factions agreed to organize a joint rally raising Palestinian flags only to show support to the Palestinian statehood bid.

Member of the politburo of the Palestinian People’s Party Walid al-Awad told Ma’an that factions would submit a memo to the government in Gaza about the rally, planned for Thursday.

The rally, he added, will kick off at the Unknown Soldier Square in Gaza City at noon.

The announcement came amid renewed efforts to demonstrate Palestinian unity in the aftermath of Israel's deadly assault on the Gaza Strip a week earlier.

A Fatah delegation on Tuesday joined premier of the Hamas-run government in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh in a ceremony to honor families bereaved in the latest Israeli military offensive.

Earlier, Haniyeh told reporters in Gaza City that his government supported the UN bid.

Haniyeh said “nobody is against statehood, and (my government) supports any political movement to establish a Palestinian state on the occupied Palestinian territory.”

“Our vision is to have a state based on inalienable Palestinian principles, and a state on the pre-1967 borders does not mean ceding the rest of Palestinian land.”

PLO leader Hanan Ashrawi told Ma'an the final resolution was submitted Monday to the UN in New York, requesting an upgrade of Palestine's UN status to an "observer state."

The UN General Assembly is expected to pass the resolution Thursday.
