Fatah and Hamas to meet in hopes of Gaza reconciliation

By Rami Almeghari

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, of President Abbas’s Fatah party, will travel to the Gaza strip this Monday, in an effort to bring together Fatah and its rival Hamas -- which runs the Gaza strip.

The two Palestinian parties split more than ten years ago, but Monday’s visit comes after Hamas agreed to make concessions and hold elections – something that was seen as a move towards Palestinian unity.

Ahead of Monday’s visit, correspondent Rami Almeghari in Gaza assesses the talk of improved relations between the two parties.
