Hamas and Fatah officials held a meeting in the West Bank to discuss Palestinian reconciliation efforts recently, the Maan news agency reported on Wednesday.

Fatah leaders signed a reconciliation deal with their Hamas counterparts in April, but the agreement has stalled in a dispute over who will lead a unity government they agreed to form ahead of a new parliamentary election.

The meeting, which took place at the home of Nasser al-Shaer, a former deputy to Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, was described as an introductory step to prepare a future meeting to be held between the two sides in Cairo, tentatively scheduled for early October.
