Israel Prevents Abbas' Envoy from Entering Gaza Three Days Before Signing of Palestinian Reconciliation Agreement
Abbas's personal envoy for national reconciliation has been prevented from entering Gaza strip from Ramallah Sunday morning through the Erez crossing. This is, in fact, a second for Mohamed Abou Tir, Abbas's envoy.
As an alternative, Abou Tir is considering entering through the Rafah crossing on the Egyptian Gaza border.
Abou Tir's visit was expected to precede the signing of the national reconciliation agreement to be signed in Egypt on Wednesday 4 May to put the Palestinian house in order.
Meanwhile, Palestinian presidential political advisor, Nemr Hamad, confirmed Abbas's intention to go on with his planned visit to the Strip before the end of this month.'
