Haniyeh Returns to Gaza after Regional Tour

The prime minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh, on Thursday arrived in the coastal enclave after his second tour which included Qatar, Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iran, and Egypt.

Haniyeh said that some of the countries offered to provide fuel for Gaza in order to end the blackout. He added that he spoke with Egyptian officials who were positive about allowing fuel from any country into Gaza.

He discussed with officials in the countries he visited the Palestinian cause, especially Jerusalem, and Israeli policies against Palestinians in Jerusalem, in order to protect them, he said.

Other topics included reconciliation and the issue of housing 300 freed prisoners. An unnamed Palestinian official has donated 120 dunums of land to build houses for the freed prisoners, he said. One of the countries he visited intends to fund construction of the homes, he added.
