The United States strengthened its offer of support for President Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday, telling him an international aid embargo against the Palestinians would end as soon as he forms a new government without Hamas, aides to Abbas said. There was no immediate U.S. confirmation.

Hundreds of Fatah gunmen stormed Hamas-controlled institutions across the West Bank, seeking revenge for the Islamic group's takeover of the Gaza Strip.

Same article says the Arab world supports Fatah too. I guess we all know who will be supporting Hamas.
Iran and Syria. Hamas is looking at Hizbollah's successes and will emulate them.
