Egypt is sending a delegation of officials to Gaza to advance Hamas-Fatah reconciliation, Yusef Rizka, political adviser to Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Monday, according to Aljazeera.

In an official statement quoted by Aljazeera, Rizqa said that the aim of the visit was to aid reconciliation between the two parties. He added that the visit would be "meaningful" and of "of great value," particularly regarding the issue of political prisoners.

The meeting was reportedly slated to take place at Haniyeh's home in Gaza.
