Rami Hamdallah, the prime minister of the Palestinian Authority’s reconciliation government, arrived in the Gaza Strip on Thursday.

The visit marks the first time that a sitting Palestinian prime minister has entered the Hamas-controlled enclave since the Islamist group ousted Fatah from power in 2007.

Hamdallah is scheduled to convene a cabinet meeting of the reconciliation government - a body comprised of technocrats who have the formal backing of both Fatah and Hamas.

The cabinet session will take place in Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ home in Gaza City. Afterward, Hamdallah is scheduled to dine with Hamas’ deputy political bureau chief Ismail Haniyeh.
