Hamas leader in Gaza Yahya al-Sinwar said on Sunday that his movement “will never go back to the internal division whatever the price was,” Sama News Agency reported.
During a meeting with Palestinian factions in Gaza, Sinwar stressed that his movement “is serious” regarding the treatment of all the national division files in Cairo.
“The achievement of Palestinian national unity is a boost for the national cause and the only way towards undermining efforts to liquidate the Palestinian issue,” he said.
He noted that the Palestinian factions played a central role in achieving the reconciliation through their support and pressing of both sides not to retreat.
With a Hamas delegation slated to travel to Cairo on Tuesday, Sinwar reiterated that his movement would continue discussing everything with all the Palestinian factions in Gaza during their talks with Fatah.
Hamas and Fatah delegations are planning to meet in Egypt and discuss completing all the issues related to the reconciliation.
The Palestinian national government held its weekly meeting in Gaza last Tuesday and postponed taking any steps towards cancelling the punitive measures against Gaza until after Hamas and Fatah talks.
