Zuhri said that Fatah needs to realize that he lost the election for the Palestinian legislative Council in 2006 in the West Bank and the Gaza strip.

Tel Aviv has set out limited goals for the initial negotiations on the situation in the Gaza Strip, which has seen mass protests, shootings and the use of firebomb kites by Palestinians along the Gaza-Israel fence.

Hussam Badran, one senior Hamas official, during a Sunday interview with Gaza radio station said, "Hamas has conducted internal meetings that have not yet ended".

In return, the PA would resume paying its employees in Gaza whose salaries it has withheld, the TV report said.

Al-Jaghoub said that his movement had warned the Palestinians and their factions regarding "the conspiracies being plotted against them represented by the "deal of the century". Twenty-four of slain protesters were minors, the ministry has said.

The army said some 8,000 people took part in five separate protests along the border, and that troops responded with riot disposal means and live fire in accordance with appropriate rules of engagement. At least 50 of those killed have been identified by Hamas as members of the militant group.

The decision to create an improved naval barrier was coordinated with the Israel Border Guard Police in cooperation with the Gaza Division of the IDF Southern Command, in response to lessons learned from the 2014 counter terror war with Hamas, Operation Protective Edge.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed in a statement that an aircraft fired at the group in the northern Gaza Strip.

Israel has shut the Kerem Shalom crossing, Gaza's sole commercial access point, as a punitive measure over the launch of incendiary balloons by Palestinian activists from the seaside enclave into Israel, banning all deliveries except food and medicine. That appears not to be sitting well with some officials, and as soon as Hamas' acceptance was announced, some Israelis were already complaining about the proposal to hold talks with Hamas on returning bodies of slain soldiers, insisting the returns should be a precondition to anything else.
