Fatah officials say nearly one million people attended a Gaza City rally to celebrate the 48th anniversary since the nationalist movement's founding. The celebrations mark the first time since 2007 that Gaza rulers Hamas have allowed Fatah to hold such events.

"Soon we will achieve unity and end the occupation, raising the Palestinian flag over Al-Aqsa mosque and Jerusalem," Abbas said in a recorded speech played to the crowds.
