Palestinian reconciliation: Will Fatah, Hamas agreement succeed?

The two leading Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas have agreed to hold general elections by the end of 2018. The decision is being seen by some as a milestone, since the last Palestinian parliamentary polls took place over a decade ago. In a joint statement on Wednesday, the rival factions praised a unity deal signed in Cairo last month, calling it a "realistic start to end divisions". But sceptics warn that similar agreements have stalled at the last hurdle in the past. Will this one succeed?
