"Thousands of Palestinians in Gaza from various political factions took to the streets and marched towards the Palestinian Legislative Council demanding an end internal Palestinian division.

Demonstrators carried only Palestinian flags and chanted slogans, calling for Palestinian unity and an end to the current split between Hamas and Fatah.

Protestors called on both Fatah and Hamas to bury their differences and work toward reconciliation.

The rally was boycotted by the Fatah movement and the left-wing People's Party.

Hamas's interior ministry says that the rally shows that Hamas respects the freedom of speech.

There have been various efforts to narrow the division between the Fatah and Hamas factions that has undermined the Palestinian cause. But, to date, no solid compromise has been achieved.
Everyone in Gaza hopes Palestinians will unite and stand together as one nation, in the face of growing external threats.

Today's event came in light of the growing demand by all Palestinian people to end the political divisions. Palestinian factions in Gaza are also calling for reconciliation between the political groups and a national unity government.
