GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Hamas leaders in Gaza, the West Bank and Doha are holding meetings Friday before returning to Cairo to discuss a ceasefire agreement, officials said.
Senior Hamas official Izzat al-Rasheq said that Moussa Abu Marzouq will travel to Doha while a Hamas delegation arrived in Tunisia from Cairo on Friday.
Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal is based in the Qatari capital.
Both Palestinian and Israeli delegations are expected to return to Cairo on Sunday.
Palestinian factions agreed to renew a ceasefire for five days on Wednesday as both sides continue talks to reach a permanent agreement after an Israeli military offensive lasting five weeks.
