Israel opposes Palestinian unity deal

Israeli PM asks Fatah to abandon agreement aimed at ending its feud with rival Hamas.

    Palestinian factions have signed a unity deal which paves the way for legislative and presidential elections within a year.

    The agreement aims to end a four-year-old feud between rivals Fatah and Hamas.

    But Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, opposes the agreement and has asked Fatah leaders to abandon it.
