Israeli President Shimon Peres condemned on Thursday the unity deal drafted between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction and the rival Islamist group Hamas, saying it was an obstacle to peace.

"The agreement between Fatah and the terror organisation Hamas is a fatal mistake that will prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state and will sabotage chances of peace and stability in the region," Peres said in a statement.
