    Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad will resign in the coming weeks to enable the formation of a Fatah-Hamas unity government. He will apparently be replaced by a Palestinian businessman who is politically unaffiliated and would be acceptable to the West as well as to Hamas and Fatah.

    The new premier will head a government of technocrats whose writ will cover both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

    On Tuesday, senior Palestinian sources told Haaretz that over the past few days, a breakthrough occurred in the Egyptian-brokered talks to set up a unity government. Next Friday, Palestinian Authority President and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas will meet in Cairo with the head of Hamas' political bureau, Khaled Meshal, in an effort to finalize the deal.
