Iran is the top sponsor of the Palestinian division between the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, Fatah Central Committee member Azzam al-Ahmad said on Monday.

Masked Palestinian gunmen from the Izzedine al-Qassam Brigades, a military wing of Hamas, commemorate the 29th anniversary of their group, in Gaza City, Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016.

Although the argument is being made that Hamas will be sitting in a government that as a body accepts the preconditions including recognition of Israel, adherence to previously-signed agreements and non-violence so the Palestinian entity should not be penalized, many U.S. lawmakers reject the logic and will demand that Hamas lay down its arms.

On November 21 and 22, Palestinian national authorities and factions met in Cairo upon an Egyptian invitation to resume talks between Fatah and Hamas.

While urging Fatah not to respond to any pressure or temptation from any party trying to obstruct the achievement of reconciliation, Hayya underlined the need to fully implement the Cairo Agreement, which was signed in 2011.

Palestinian Authority Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh stated on Sunday that a mere five percent of the territory has changed hands, even though the full changeover is supposed to be completed by December 1.

Spokesperson for Palestinian faction says "weapons of resistance" is a red line amid ongoing reconciliation process.

Hamas has ruled Gaza, while Abbas's Fatah has controlled autonomous enclaves in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

According to official Palestinian sources, the delegation, who entered Gaza through the Beit Hanoun (Erez) crossing, included the deputy head of the Palestinian dossier at the Egyptian intelligence, Major General Hammam Abu-Zeid, and the Egyptian Consul-General in Ramallah, Khaled Sami. Israel captured all three areas in the 1967 Six-Day War, although it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.
