    Participation

    Aljazeera correspondent al-Umari added that 15 members from Fatah were expected  to participate in Quraya's new government.

    But Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine are likely to stay away, he reported.

    Meanwhile, Israel pulled down a Palestinian home during an early morning raid near the border with Egypt in the Gaza Strip.

    A grenade was thrown at the Israeli soldiers during the raid. But Israeli and Palestinian sources said the raid did not result in any human casualties.
