Hamas chief visits Egypt ahead of US embassy move
CAIRO 13 May (ANA) - The senior political leader of Hamas Ismail Haniya has travelled to Cairo with a high-ranking delegation to hold talks with senior Egyptian officials about "developments" in Palestine and the region.
A Hamas statement on Sunday said the delegation had accepted an invitation extended by neighbouring Egypt.
Hamas governs the Gaza Strip, a densely populated coastal enclave that shares borders with Egypt and Israel, with which it has fought three wars since 2008.
The agenda will include talks over the controversial US embassy move, scheduled to take place on Monday.
The decision announced by US President Donald Trump in December has angered Palestinians, who view the eastern part of the city as the capital of their future state.
Thousands of Palestinians are expected to protest against the move from across the occupied Palestinian territories on Monday, including the Gaza Strip as part of the Great March of Return.(ANA)
