Football stages comeback in Gaza

Hamas and Fatah reach rare agreement and decide to give game new lease of life in enclave.

    In the Gaza Strip, most football clubs are run by Fatah supporters. When rival Hamas took control of the Palestinian enclave in 2007, one of the victims was the game itself.

    Political disputes still run deep between the two groups, but they have reached an agreement to bring football back to Gaza.

    Deprived of official matches in the three years, Gazans are happy to see the return of the Palestinian Cup.
