The resigned Palestinian Premier Salam Fayyad has urged Acting Palestinian Authority Chief to back formation of a national unity government.

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who submitted his written resignation to Abbas recently, asserted that the Palestinian Authority should back a unity government of both Hamas and Fatah for unifying the two 'extremes' of Palestinian politics, International Middle East Media Center reported.

Fayyad says the resignation of his government, effective at the end of this month, is aimed to facilitate an agreement for a National Unity Government in the Palestinian territories.

The resignation came as representatives of Fatah and Hamas were holding talks in the Egyptian capital to achieve a unity government.

The government would be based on the outcome of the Cairo national dialogue.

On Saturday, Mahmoud Abbas asked Fayyad to remain at his post until the internal Palestinian talks achieve positive results, including an agreement for legislative and presidential elections.

Fayyad on Sunday also emphasized on the fact that the ongoing Israeli settlement activities on the occupied West Bank, pose a stumbling block in the path of regional peace.

Israeli forces illegally destroy Palestinian houses in Jerusalem (al-Quds), widely viewed as the capital of Palestinians' future state, to build Jewish settlements.

Israel has in recent months announced the construction of hundreds of new Jewish homes in the territory in breach of the United Nations Security Council resolutions.

At the US-hosted Annapolis Conference, Israel pledged to halt all settlement activities in East al-Quds and West Bank.
