Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas delivers a speech in the Egyptian capital Cairo on May 4, 2011. The rival factions, Fatah and Hamas, signed a reconciliation accord in Cairo after reaching common ground against Israeli occupation and peace efforts. Mashaal said they had a 'common goal; a Palestinian state with full sovereignty on the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as the capital'. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that the reconciliation between the factions as a 'blow to peace', but the US declined to make any comment. UPI\ Mohammed Hosam
