Fars News:"Lawmaker Adores Hamas-Fatah Unity Deal"

And a female "lawmaker" at that, although I think the use of the word "adore" in the headline simply shows an odd sense of English diction ("I just adore the Hamas-Fatah unity deal, Darling"):
A senior member of the Iranian parliament welcomed reconciliation among Palestinian groups, describing the recent deal between Hamas and Fatah as a source of concern for Washington and Tel Aviv.

"The recent unity agreement between Fatah and Hamas caused grave concerns in the United States and the Zionist regime [of Israel] as they … used to achieve their objectives in the region by creating division and sowing discord," member of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Zohreh Elahian told MNA on Thursday.

Thirteen Palestinian groups including, Fatah and Hamas, have signed a landmark unity deal ending their long-running division. In a ceremony at the Egyptian capital Cairo, representatives from the groups endorsed the deal they agreed on last week.

The Iranian legislator added that the US has threatened to cut its aid to Fatah after the deal, and noted that Washington's reaction is indicative of the US anger over unity between Palestinian factions.

She expressed the Islamic Republic's support for the Hamas-Fatah unity deal and expressed hope that such agreements would lead to the victory of the Palestinian people.

"Iranian parliament proposes active Palestinian groups to use all their potential to fight the Zionist regime [of Israel] and avoid differences," Elahian concluded.
If you are into the "peace process," you should not be too happy at the moment--Jimmy Carter notwithstanding.
