BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The March 15 coalition has launched an initiative to gather a million signatures to end the division, the coordinator of the coalition Yousef Nouri told Ma’an.

“This campaign will be house-to-house, street-to-street, city-to-city in the West Bank and Gaza demanding an end to division,” Nouri said.

The document reads: “I, a Palestinian citizen, urge Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the Palestinian Authority, and Aziz Dweik, the speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, to sign this document.”

It also “demands that the leaders of Fatah and Hamas in the West Bank and Gaza ratify it.”

“We will go to Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh with this demand, and Zakaria Al-Agha, member of the PLO executive committee, urging them to restore Palestinian rights and their national project,” Nouri said.

He urged President Abbas to speed up his preparations visit Gaza.
