Egyptian security delegation arrives in Gaza

By Friday, the Islamists are due to hand over control of the Gaza Strip to the internationally recognised Palestinian government, based in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

During a press conference held by the Palestinian resistance movement in Gaza on Monday, Al-Haye stressed that the issue of the group's weapons is a red line, calling on other Palestinian sides to refrain from tackling the matter.

Although the argument is being made that Hamas will be sitting in a government that as a body accepts the preconditions including recognition of Israel, adherence to previously-signed agreements and non-violence so the Palestinian entity should not be penalized, many USA lawmakers reject the logic and will demand that Hamas lay down its arms.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has said he does not want any country interfering in the reconciliation process, except for Egypt, which is sponsoring the talks.

The reconciliation agreement signed on October 12 in Cairo does not specify a future for the Qassam Brigades. As of Sunday, Palestinian Authority Minister of Civil Affairs Hussein al-Sheikh said that Fatah has only been able to assume control over 5% of Gaza, which remains under the military and political control of Hamas.

The two factions agreed to allow the unity government to assume responsibility for all of Gaza's border crossings no later than November 1. Al-Hayya said Palestinian factions and the Fatah group have failed to pressure the government to lift its punitive measures against the seaside strip.

The move came after two days of negotiations in the Egyptian capital on the governing of the Gaza Strip as part of the most serious effort to date to end the 10-year rift between the rival Palestinian groups.

Hamas, which is considered a terrorist organization by the United States and the European Union, has fought three wars with Israel since 2008.
