Amid the jublilation, an Israeli air strike on Gaza wounded six people, the coastal territory’s ruling movement Hamas said. “An agreement has been reached on the formation within five weeks of an independent government headed by President Mahmoud Abbas,” said a joint statement read out by Hamas’s Gaza premier Ismail Haniyeh in front of a visiting delegation from the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).
