The Palestinians have relaunched efforts to reconcile their rival leaderships in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as US-brokered peace talks with Israel teeter on the edge of collapse.A week before a nine-month target originally set for an Israeli-Palestinian deal, a Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) delegation was expected in Gaza City on Tuesday to try to revive long-stagnant unity efforts.At the same time, the Palestinians refloated and then played down a threat to dismantle the PA, which is Israel's negotiating partner, if their peace talks remain deadlocked.Israel and the PA have taken a string of hostile steps since the Jewish state refused to release a batch of Palestinian prisoners as previously agreed, insisting first on Palestinian approval of an extension of the talks beyond their April 29 deadline.
