Egypt has agreed to allow increased trade and travel through the Rafah crossing with Gaza Strip starting on Sunday, as a Hamas delegation meets with Egyptian officials in Cairo, the Lebanese Al-Akhbar newspaper reported on Thursday.

According to the report, the Egyptians agreed to allow more construction materials, including iron, to be imported into Gaza through the Rafah crossing and to supply "large quantities of goods" to the coastal enclave. The export of goods from Gaza, including agricultural products, handicrafts and furniture, will also reportedly be allowed to external markets.

The delegation also received a commitment from Egypt to allow Palestinian merchants to travel through the Rafah crossing and to allow them into Cairo through coordination carried out by the Gaza Chamber of Commerce, the Interior Ministry in Gaza, and Egyptian Authorities.
