A delegation from the Islamist terrorist group Hamas will head to Cairo for reconciliation talks with Palestinian political rival Fatah on Sunday, the organization said in a statement.
The delegation will be headed by Saleh al-Arouri, deputy leader of Hamas’ political wing, and be joined by Izzat Al-Rishq, Khalil Al-Hayya, and Rouhi Mushtaha.
Concerns over a recent string of diplomatic victories for Israel in the Arab world have given the Palestinian political foes an incentive to relaunch reconciliation talks as they see their closest allies back away from their cause for an independent state in favor of forging ties with Jerusalem and Washington DC.
On Friday, Sudan joined the UAE and Bahrain in normalizing relations with the Jewish state following weeks of negotiations with the Trump Administration.
Jerusalem officials believe Oman and Saudi Arabia could be next to strike peace with Israel.
The Hamas delegation is also scheduled to discuss bilateral relations with Egypt, regional politics, and the Gaza Strip’s current humanitarian situation. Cairo has long posed as an unofficial mediator in Palestinian reconciliation talks.
