Hamas says ready to reconcile with Fatah without preconditions

Hamas says it is ready to talk reconciliation with the government of Palestinian Leader Mahmoud Abbas, without preconditions.

Hamas had previously demanded that Abbas halt a series of measures taken against the terrorist group before sitting down to discuss a reconciliation deal.

The rival Palestinian factions split in 2007 when Hamas violently routed forces loyal to Abbas from Gaza.  Repeated attempts at reconciliation have since failed.
