Unity government deputy PM arrives in Gaza via Erez

Aug. 12, 2014 9:08 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 13, 2014 11:57 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Ziad Abu Amro arrived in Gaza on Tuesday in his first visit since the formation of a new unity government.

Abu Amro was accompanied by former minister Kamal al-Sharafi and entered via the Erez crossing.

The visit marks the first time Israel has allowed officials from the Palestinian unity government to enter Gaza through Erez since its formation.

Hamas and the PLO, dominated by Fatah, signed a surprise reconciliation agreement in April to end years of rivalry.
