A lasting solidarity among Palestinian factions is the Israeli regime’s Achilles Heel, an international lawyer tells Press TV.
"The thing that frightens the Zionist regime most is Palestinian unity. So if they can stay focused, I think the Palestinians have got to stay focused on unity, unity, unity and then be patient,” Franklin Lamb said in a Friday interview with Press TV.
He pointed to a recent reconciliation deal between the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, saying, "I am optimistic actually that they are going to work out this unity thing.”
The political commentator also underlined the importance of continuation of anti-Israel resistance movement, adding, "We have got to resist, it is the only way. Liberation depends on resistance and resistance depends on persistence.”
On April 23, Hamas and the Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority reached a reconciliation agreement after two days of intense discussions. The two sides pledged to end their differences and form a Palestinian unity government.
Under the long-awaited deal, the rival Palestinian factions of Hamas and Fatah are to form a unity government within five weeks and hold national elections six months later.
Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh has said that the new agreement mainly focuses on implementing previous reconciliation deals reached in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, in 2011 and the Qatari capital, Doha, in 2012.
The Israeli regime and its staunch supporter, the United States, have reacted angrily to the Palestinian deal.
While Washington expressed disappointment over the deal, the Israeli regime cancelled the so-called peace talks with the Palestinian Authority.
