Page-11: Palestine to seek support of Indians. . Indicating at a new strategy of engagement, Palestine said India's recent display of support has boosted the ongoing political reconciliation in the country. . A senior Palestinian diplomat said the speech of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj at the Non-Alignment ministerial in New York encouraged the Palestinian cause and said his country would seek support from all sections of Indians for protection of the Al Aqsa mosque. In her speech delivered at the ministerial of the member countries of the Non-Alignment Movement (NAM), Ms. Swaraj had cited India's traditional support for the rights of the Palestinian people and said, "For independent India, support for the Palestinian cause has been a reference point of its foreign policy. Two-state solution: In his speech at the UN delivered on September 20, President Abbas strongly urged the international community to pressure Israel for the implementation of the two- state solution, and pledged to give a chance to the peace plans of the U.S He highlighted that following internal reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas factions, the move for an independent Palestine will gain new momentum.
. He also indicated that Ramallah would begin a new outreach to all parts of India and in this respect a beginning would be made with two India-Palestine friendship societies to be inaugurated soon in Odisha and Punjab. Hamas's decision to dissolve the Gaza administrative committee and hold talks with Fatah is the strongest signal yet from the Islamist group that it is ready to cooperate in finding common ground with its political rival. Hamas, which won the 2006 elections in the Palestinian territories, fought a war with Fatah in 2007 for the control of Gaza after its West Bank government was dissolved by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. Ever since, Mr.Abbas's Fatah ruled those parts of the West Bank that are not under Israeli control, while Hamas dominated Gaza. However, in recent months Hamas has shown interest in a rapprochement as the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip, blockaded by Israel and Egypt, worsens.

Page-12 World News:Women rejoice as Saudi ban ends. . Saudi Arabia's historic decision to allow women to drive won plaudits internationally and inside the conservative kingdom as euphoria mixed with disbelief among activists who long fought the ban. . King Salman's decree, which takes effect next June, is part of an ambitious reform push that runs the risk of a backlash from religious hard-liners Saudi Arabia was the only country in the world to impose a ban on women driving and its maintenance was seen as a symbol of repression in the Gulf kingdom around the world. Conservative clerics in Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy ruled according to Islamic sharia law, have long opposed lifting the ban, arguing that it would lead to promiscuity. One of them even claimed that driving harmed women's ovaries. Under the country's guardianship system, a male family member-normally the father, husband or brother must grant permission for a woman's study, travel and other activities. Plaudits from leaders U.S. President Donald Trump welcomed the decision to end the ban as a positive step toward promoting the rights and opportunities of women in Saudi Arabia.
