Fatah's Gaza rally hints at Palestinian unity

Observers see Hamas' move to allow Fatah rally in Gaza City as possible easing of ties between groups.

    Tens of thousands of Fatah supporters have celebrated the group's 48th anniversary in Gaza City.  

    Hamas, which governs the Gaza strip, allowed the event to go ahead, despite historic tensions between the two sides.  

    Some Palestinians see the move as a possible step towards unity.
