    Fatah today staged its first Gaza rally in five years to celebrate the 48th anniversary of the Palestinian Authority party.

    Thousands of people were seen waving yellow flags in solidarity with the party.

    The event resembled Hamas-inspired rallies that often take place in the West Bank and Gaza. Critics have suggested that the event is a sign of a growing alliance between Fatah and the terrorist group.

    Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri told Reuters: "The success of the rally is a success for Fatah, and for Hamas too. The positive atmosphere is a step on the way to regain national unity."

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned the international community of Hamas’s increasing strength. “Hamas could seize control of the PA any day,” Mr Netanyahu said yesterday.
