"Thousands of Hamas supporters took to the streets of the Gaza Strip demanding an end to the Palestinians rift.

Carrying Palestinian flags and placards saying yes to dialogue and unity they marched through Gaza streets.

The protestors then converged on the Palestinian legislative council where they shouted slogans for unity and called for an end to the Israeli blockade.

Hamas says reconciliation is a central issue for Palestinians, as the liberation of the entire land of Palestine depends very much on unity between the West Bank and Gaza.

Elected officaila called for the restructuring of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as a basis for Palestinian national reconciliation.

Protestors, young and old, from all walks of life called on both Fatah and Hamas to bury their differences and work toward reconciliation.

As evidenced by this huge rally, Palestinians in Gaza believe unity is indispensable, and no matter how serious the divisions between different factions may seem, there is a common ideal of a free Palestine that serves to unite all Palestinians.

Hamas has called for national reconciliation and the partnership of all the political factions. The rift between Hamas and Fatah started in 2007 and all reconciliation efforts have failed so far.
