There are three needed steps to achieve peace. Step 1 is Palestinian unity government is . Step 2 is when it proclaims that it recognizes that Israrel exists as a legitimate Jewish state. Step 3 is a demonstration that it will no longer will attack Israel with rockets, mortars, suicide bombers, kidnap its soldiers, etc.. After a suitable time with no provocative acts there will be a basis for discussion about borders and ultimately recognition. At this point Israel need do nothing. If the new entity continues to try to force peace by waging war then nothing will have been accomplished.
