RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Fatah official Azzam al-Ahmad announced a new reconciliation meeting with Hamas on Thursday, and then said later that Hamas had asked to postpone the date.

But al-Ahmad later released a press statement said Hamas deputy politburo chief Mousa Abu Marzouq called him to asked for the meeting to be postponed until Feb. 27.

The parties have been at loggerheads since they split the West Bank and Gaza into separate governments in 2007.
