Fatah-Hamas Deal Step Forward: MP

The agreement is of high importance and has angered the United States and the Zionist regime, Elahian told the MNA.

Elahian, who is the chairperson of the Majlis Human Rights Committee, added that the Islamic Republic supports the agreement and the parliament also backs the stance adopted by Iran’s diplomatic apparatus.

On Wednesday, the Palestinian factions issued a statement, saying they had reached an "understanding" in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, to set up a transitional unity government and hold elections.

The Egypt-mediated agreement between Fatah and Hamas calls for presidential and legislative elections to be held within a year.

The two Palestinian factions have been at odds since Hamas won a sweeping victory in the 2006 elections.

Hamas has vowed that the reconciliation deal will stay in place despite all the pressure from the US and Israel, which have been campaigning to prevent the recognition of a Palestinian state that includes the resistance movement.
