After visiting the occupied West Bank, an Egyptian security delegation returned to the Gaza Strip yesterday, the Anadolu Agency reported.

Security source told Anadolu that the Egyptian delegation returned to Gaza to continue its efforts in following up the implementation of the internal reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas.

During its stay in Gaza, the Egyptian delegation held several meetings with officials from both Hamas and Fatah along with leaders from the different Palestinian factions as part of its efforts to end internal divisions.

In October 2017, Egypt brokered a reconciliation deal between Fatah and Hamas. It said it would dispatch a security delegation to Gaza to follow up the implementation of the reconciliation deal.
