Hamas and Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement reached an agreement Wednesday to cooperate in the struggle against Israel. Early reports had said that Fatah hoped to use the Cairo meeting to convince Hamas to stop terror attacks inside Israel. Instead, officials from the two groups agreed to work together to strengthen Palestinian national unity and “stop the aggression of” Israel’s “occupational forces,” according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.
