Khaled Fawzi (C), head of the Egyptian Intelligence services, Azzam al-Ahmad (C-L), head of the Fatah delegation for the talks, and Hamas' Saleh al-Aruri (C-R) pose for a group picture with both Palestinian delegations following the signing of a reconciliation deal at the Egyptian intelligence services headquarters in Cairo on October 12, 2017, as the two rival Palestinian movements ended their decade-long split following negotiations overseen by Egypt. The new Hamas deputy leader and the head of Fatah's delegation struck the deal which was described by Palestinian Authority president Mahmud Abbas as a "final agreement" to end their crippling division, which has at times erupted into deadly conflict over the past ten years .
