Fatah has accepted Hamas’s invitation to participate in celebrations in the Gaza Strip marking the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Islamist movement.
The invitation, the first of its kind in more than a decade, is seen as yet another sign of rapprochement between the rivals parties.
Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal is expected to arrive in the Gaza Strip for the first time on Friday to attend the celebrations.
On Thursday, Mashaal’s wife and daughters arrived in the Strip together with 15 Hamas officials.
Relatives of slain Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabari also headed from the West Bank to the Gaza Strip via Egypt to attend the celebrations.
Jabari, whom the IAF killed on November 14, was originally from Hebron.What could go wrong?
