Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh left Gaza to Egypt on Saturday with a delegation of 21 senior Hamas members. Haniyeh is meeting with senior Egyptian security personnel.
The Hamas delegation are trying to improve relations with Egypt, which have been on a down-slide ever since the terror attacks began in the Sinai which many suspect are connected to Islamic groups in Gaza, as well as Egypt’s recent flooding and destruction of tens, and possibly even hundreds of Gazan smuggling tunnels.
Egypt also believes that Hamas was specifically involved in an attack that killed 16 Egyptian policemen last year in the Sinai (Rafah).
Al-Arabiyah claims that Haniyeh plans to talk about “Israeli violations of the truce” [between Israel and Gaza].
