The Arab League (AL) decided in Cairo on Tuesday to form an Arab committee to supervise the implementation of the Palestinian reconciliation agreement, state news agency MENA reported.

The decision was made during an extraordinary session of the AL at the permanent delegates' level held at its Cairo headquarter.

Egypt will chair the committee, whose members also include Jordan, United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Qatar, Morocco and Yemen, along with the AL secretary general to follow up the reconciliation process.

The committee will set its work agenda in the first meeting, then submit regular reports to the AL council.

The Palestinian factions signed on May 3 the reconciliation agreement in Cairo to end four years of divisions mainly between the Fatah movement led by Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas and its rival Islamic Hamas, ruler of the Gaza Strip.
