Members of Fatah's Central Committee, Rawhi Fattouh, and Ismail Jaber arrived on Friday morning to the Gaza Strip via the Erez Crossing, Quds Press reported.

Both Fatah leaders from the occupied West Bank visited Gaza after a Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) delegation had cancelled its visit to the besieged enclave.

The PLO delegation was scheduled to visit Gaza last week, in order to meet with the Palestinian factions and discuss joint measures to confront the "Deal of the Century".

Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other factions welcomed the visit of the Fatah leaders, confirming that they will discuss several issues, including ending the internal division.
