    RAMALLAHnt that should pave the way for national elections, Palestinian daily Al-Quds reports. The paper explained that negotiations were held between Sunday and Monday in Doha under the sponsorship of the Qatari emirate.
    Along with discussions concerning the creation of a new joint cabinet, talks between Khaled Meshaal for Hamas and Azzam al-Ahmad for Fatah focused - added Al-Quds - on the management of Rafah (the border crossing between Gaza and Egypt), which under the deal should be jointly managed by the presidential guards of Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas. A previous attempt to create a national unity government dates back to June 2014, which has so far failed due to the incompatibility of the most radical members of the two factions.
