GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Spokesman for the Gaza Strip prime minister Ismail Haniyeh announced on Friday that newspapers from the West Bank would be allowed again in Gaza beginning from next week.

Issam al-Daalees said in a statement distributed by the prime minister's office that "the return of the newspapers is part of the decisions that have been taken by the government in Gaza to prepare the atmosphere on the ground for reconciliation."

He also expressed hope that the government in Ramallah would allow newspapers produced in Gaza to be distributed in the West Bank.

The decision comes after a national reconciliation agreement was announced Wednesday between Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, and the Fatah-led PLO, which controls the West Bank.
