July 28, 2012 17:29

Hamas on Saturday invited newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi and leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood to visit the Gaza Strip.

The invitation was relayed to Mursi and the Muslim Brotherhood leaders by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who is currently visiting Egypt for the first time since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak.

The PA leadership in the West Bank, meanwhile, has expressed disappointment with Mursi for inviting the Hamas Prime Minister to Cairo.

The PA position was delivered to the Egyptians through their envoy to Ramallah, a PA official told The Jerusalem Post.
