Ab­bas to visit Gaza within a month, says of­fi­cial

The Nation - - WORLD -

Pales­tinian pres­i­dent Mah­mud Ab­bas will visit Gaza for the first time in a decade “within less than a month,” a top of­fi­cial in his Fatah party said yes­ter­day, after rec­on­cil­i­a­tion talks with ri­vals Ha­mas.

Ab­bas “will be in Gaza within less than a month,” Zakaria al-Agha, a top Fatah of­fi­cial in the Gaza Strip, said after a break­through in talks be­tween the two sides in Cairo.

Ab­bas has not vis­ited the en­clave since his forces were forced out in 2007 by Is­lamists Ha­mas.
