Egypt's special envoy to the reconciliation arrives in Gaza

Hamas reconciles with Palestinian Authority in Gaza

Palestinian PM arrives in Gaza, first visit since 2015

He also urged an immediate lifting of the Israeli and Egyptian blockade on Gaza and an end to Israel's collective punishment of Palestinians in the enclave. The Cabinet members later went to the offices of each of their ministries to formally assume control from Hamas.

Before concluding his visit, Fawzy invited Hamas and Fatah leaders to meet in Cairo next week to discuss further moves in reconciliation, which is set to include another comprehensive meeting for all Palestinian factions to activate a reconciliation agreement reached in Cairo in 2015.

"The whole world is waiting for your efforts to achieve reconciliation among the Palestinian people and appreciates your determination to address all obstacles", Sissi said in a pre-recorded speech addressing the two main Palestinian movements on Tuesday. "There is an opportunity for achieving peace in the region". Almost 100 Israelis have been killed and thousands injured.

Israel in the past has opposed any role in Palestinian government for Hamas, which achieved worldwide notoriety in the 1990s by launching suicide bomb attacks in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The Trump administration's worldwide negotiations representative, Jason Greenblatt, called on the Palestinians on Monday to recognize Israel and commit to nonviolence, while applauding the Palestinian reconciliation efforts amid the latest round of renewed US-led peace efforts in the region.


He explained, "Whoever wants to reconcile, our position is very simple, Recognize the state of Israel, dismantle Hamas' military wing, cut ties with Iran that calls for our destruction, these are very clear things that we have previously and clearly stated".

Netanyahu insisted that any Palestinian unity would necessarily come at the expense of Israel's existence, and that he would not allow this.

Fawzy held meetings on Tuesday with the President of Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as well as Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah.
