Abbas threatens to break unity govt

(MENAFN- The Peninsula) Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to break off a unity agreement with Hamas if the Islamist movement does not allow the government to operate properly in the Gaza Strip.

Abbas's accusation that Hamas was effectively running a parallel administration in Gaza drew an angry reaction from the Islamist movement, which denounced his allegations as "baseless." But it raised fresh questions over the future of a fragile intra-Palestinian unity deal aimed at ending years of rival administrations in West Bank and Gaza.
