Hamas leader visits Egypt

(MENAFN) The leader of Hamas, which controls Gaza, has left the blockaded territory for talks in neighboring Egypt after the country opened its border for a few days.

The group said in a statement that Ismail Haniyeh left Friday, two days after Egypt opened the crossing temporarily.

This visit's goal is to discuss Gaza's economic crisis "that put Gaza on the edge of the abyss."

Talks will also cover obstacles stalling a Palestinian unity deal with the Palestinian government in the West Bank, it said.

Egypt shut the Rafah after the Hamas took over Gaza in 2007, which is caused frustration of thousands of Palestinians wishing to leave Gaza.
