Gazans welcome Palestinian unity

Deal signed in Cairo seeks to unite factions that fought deadly street battles in 2007.

    A deal aimed at ending divisions between Palestinian factions have been signed in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

    In the Gaza Strip, memories are fresh of how a dispute between Fatah and Hamas pitted Palestinians against Palestinians in 2007, after a national unity government collapsed.

    More than 100 people were killed in brutal street fighting.

    Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Gaza City, where residents welcome the unity deal.
