Gaza: Hamas allows rival Fatah to hold celebration rally

Help

Thousands of supporters of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah faction are celebrating the anniversary of its founding with a rally in Gaza.

The rival Hamas movement, which governs Gaza, agreed to allow Fatah to mark the occasion there for the first time since it ousted Fatah forces five years ago.

Last month, supporters of Hamas celebrated their movement's founding with a rare rally in the West Bank.
