Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and former Hamas minister Nasser a-Din al-Shaar will be meeting toward the end of this week for reconciliation talks, Israel Radio reported on Sunday. A-Shaar is also the former deputy prime minister in the Hamas led unity government.
The meeting comes after Abbas has expressed continued frustration regarding peace talks with Israel.
The Hamas government in Gaza has allowed 100 Fatah members who fled their homes in Gaza seven years ago during the Hamas take over of Gaza, to return home, the report added.
