Palestinian Factions Invited to Algeria to Attend National Dialog

M.Y | DOP -

Top delegations from major Palestinian factions are slated to arrive successively in the Algerian capital in the coming days at the invitation of President Abdul-Majid Tebboune to participate in inter-Palestinian reconciliation dialog.

Last Month, Tebboune announced, following a meeting with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas in Algiers, that he decided to host a conference for the Palestinian factions in the country in a bid to heal the national rift.

According to the Algerian al-Shorouk newspaper, the Algerian leadership will hold meetings separately with each visiting delegation to listen to its standpoint before determining the next step later in light of the results.  

A reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) said that a delegation from the Fatah Movement led by Azzam al-Ahmad would arrive first in Algiers.

Representatives from the Hamas Movement, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine will travel to Algeria in the coming days to hold separate meetings with local officials, he said.

The last delegation will be from Islamic Jihad and will arrive in the country at the end of the current month, he added.

Recently, head of Hamas’s political bureau Ismail Haneyya received an official invitation from Algeria’s ambassador to Qatar to discuss means of making successful national dialog.

Haneyya welcomed the invitation and formed a delegation from the political bureau, including Khalil al-Hayya and Husam Badran.
