Gaza, Al Ray - Senior member of Fatah and its reconciliation official Azzam al-Ahmad Tuesday evening arrived in Gaza via Erez Beit Hanoun crossing to discuss the formation of a unity government with Hamas.
Salah Al-Bardaweel, a senior Hamas official said, in a statement to Al Ray that Azzam al-Ahmad’s visit came to discuss the overall issues with Hamas, with respect to the formation of a national reconciliation government.
Al-Ahmad will Wednesday hold a press conference to announce the developments of the five reconciliation committees, which were agreed to in a previous agreement with Hamas, sources told Al Ray.
Forming a national Palestinian govoerment is the most important follow-up move to the reconciliation agreement signed April 23, 2014.
On April 23, Hamas and Fatah signed a reconciliation deal in Gaza with the aim of healing the rifts that marred their relations since 2007.
The deal stipulates the formation of a national unity government until legislative and presidential elections are held in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
