The leadership in the Gaza Strip would expect Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to visit the Hamas-run coastal enclave if a unity government is formed between Fatah and Hamas, Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported a Hamas official as saying on Wednesday.

According to the report, Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh's advisor Issam al-Daalees said the move would be expected of Abbas if the rival Palestinian factions reconcile in the next five weeks.

It would be Abbas's first visit to Gaza since the Hamas takeover of the Strip in 2007.
