Palestinian PM to visit Gaza for reconciliation efforts

Palestinian prime minister Rami Hamdallah will travel to the Gaza Strip on October 2 as part of reconciliation efforts with Hamas, which runs the enclave, his government said today.

The visit follows concessions by Islamist group Hamas after discussions with Egypt, which has urged it to take steps toward reconciliation with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's Fatah, based in the occupied West Bank.

Fatah and Hamas have been divided for a decade, with separate administrations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
