Egypt has invited representatives of various Palestinian factions to Cairo next week for urgent discussions on a “unified vision for Palestinian moves,” Egypt’s state-run television announced Tuesday. The invitation came after Egyptian General Intelligence Service chief Abbas Kamel held talks with Palestinian Authority officials and leaders of Hamas and other Palestinian factions in Ramallah and the Gaza Strip earlier this week.

The Cairo discussions will deal with plans for reconstruction efforts in the Gaza Strip in the aftermath of the recent 11-day fighting between Israel and Hamas and ways of ending the split between the West Bank and the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave, Palestinian sources said. The Egyptians are seeking to resolve a dispute that has erupted between the PA and Hamas over responsibility for reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, according to the sources. The Ramallah-based Palestinian government must be responsible for the reconstruction efforts, the PA has informed Egypt. Hamas, on the other hand, is reportedly demanding the establishment of an independent body that would be entrusted with overseeing the reconstruction efforts.
