Reconciliation committees hold remote meeting

Jan. 27, 2013 3:27 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 28, 2013 11:57 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Two committees tasked with implementing aspects of a Palestinian reconciliation deal held a video conference on Sunday, officials said.

West Bank and Gaza-based members of the social reconciliation committee and public freedoms committee spoke via video conference, MP Ashraf Juma said.

The lawmakers said the meeting was the result of recent meetings in Cairo between the leaders of Hamas and Fatah.

Hamas chief Khalid Mashaal and Fatah's President Mahmoud Abbas agreed to set a timetable to implement the May 2011 reconciliation deal at the Cairo summit.

The reconciliation committees on Sunday discussed the release of political detainees, and how to address those killed and wounded in the inter-factional fighting that caused the split in 2007.

Juma said he still had hope that the long-stalled reconciliation could be implemented despite the tense atmosphere in the past few days due to the arrest of journalists in Gaza.
