However, the outcome was met with skepticism as key demands were not met, leaving parties uncertain about the potential implications.

The decision was announced by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas at the conclusion of a meeting held in Al-Alamein, Egypt. During the gathering, President Abbas urged the factions to collaboratively address a wide array of critical issues. The ultimate goal is to bring an end to the prolonged political divide that has plagued Palestinians and to achieve a unified front, Ammon News reported.

Calling for immediate action, President expressed hope that the group would convene again on Egyptian soil soon, to announce to the Palestinian people the momentous achievement of ending the internal discord and reclaiming national unity.

Challenges persist, as certain factions boycotted the meeting, and the Islamic Jihad's demand for the release of its members held by Palestinian security forces was not met. During the meeting, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called for an end to security coordination with Israel and advocated for comprehensive resistance against the occupation's actions.

While some Palestinians celebrated the progress made, others emphasized the importance of taking concrete actions.
