Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad resigns
The Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has resigned today, in a move that some are saying will pave the way for a deal betwenn Hamas and Fatah.
However Hamas has said that his resignation is not going to allow this deal to happen, leaving everyone in doubt about the reasons behind his resignation. The most important goal in this region would be to end the current situation in the Gaza Strip.
''This government did not work for the sake of the Palestinians, it worked for its own agenda. This end was expected for a government that was illegal and unconstitutional,'' said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.
Mr. Fayyad became Prime Minister in 2007 after Hamas seized control of Gaza.
The first reconciliation talks were held last week and both sides have agreed to form what is known as a 'caretaker' government, which would lead to new elections for president and parliament.
