Following a reconciliation agreement between rival Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will soon visit the Gaza Strip for the first time in four years, Army Radio reported, quoting Palestinian newspaper Al Quds.

Abbas has not set foot in the Strip since Hamas seized power there in 2007. On Abbas's agenda, Army Radio reported, was a reciprocal prisoner release.
