Gaza official: Tunisian president to visit in February

Jan. 20, 2013 2:55 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 21, 2013 8:18 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) -- An official in the Hamas government in Gaza said Sunday that the president of Tunisia will visit the coastal strip in early February.

Cabinet secretary-general Abdul Salam Siyam said preparations are underway for the solidarity visit of President Moncef Marzouki.

Malaysian Prime Minister Muhammad Najib Abdul Razak is set to visit the Gaza Strip this week.

He was originally expected to arrive on Monday, but Gaza government spokesman Ihab al-Ghasin said he would now come on Tuesday morning.

He confirmed that the Malaysian premier will meet with his Gaza counterpart Ismail Haniyeh and inaugurate a number of Malaysian-supported projects in the strip.

He will also visit a number of sites in Gaza that were destroyed by Israel's November assault on the coastal enclave.

Also on Sunday, Hamas official in Lebanon Osama Hamdan visited the Gaza Strip for the first time since his exile during the first Palestinian intifada.

Hamas MP Yahya Moussa said that Hamdan's visit represents Hamas' victory in the recent conflict with Israel.

In the aftermath of the fighting, exiled Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal visited Gaza for the first time in decades. A month earlier, the Emir of Qatar made a historic visit to the Gaza Strip, the first head of state to enter Gaza since 1999.
