Hamas receives an official invitation to visit Algeria to discuss the Palestinian dialogue
Gaza: The Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas” announced on Saturday that the head of its political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, had received an official invitation to visit Algeria, to discuss ways to make the Palestinian national dialogue succeed.
The movement said, in a statement: “Haniyeh (residing in Doha) received an invitation from the Algerian ambassador in Qatar, to visit a delegation from the movement’s leadership to Algeria.”
The movement added: “This call for discussions on the means for the success of the national dialogue announced by Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune.”
The movement stated that Haniyeh had formed a “delegation of the two members of the Political Bureau, Khalil al-Haya, and Hussam Badran”, to visit Algeria.
She indicated that the delegation will leave for the Algerian capital this week, without giving further details.
On December 6, the Algerian president announced, during his speech at a press conference, after receiving his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas at the presidential headquarters in Algiers, his country’s intention to host an inclusive conference of the Palestinian factions.
The Algerian president did not specify a date for this meeting, saying only that it would be “soon.”
The Palestinian arena has been suffering from a political and geographical division, since 2007, when Hamas controls the Gaza Strip, while the Palestinian government formed by the Fatah movement, led by President Abbas, administers the West Bank.
Years ago, many meetings and meetings were held between the Palestinian factions in order to end the division and restore national unity, without resulting in any serious practical steps to achieve this.
