The head of Gaza’s Hamas resistance movement left for Cairo Sunday, sources in the movement said, a day before major protests are expected over Washington’s Al-Quds embassy move.
Ismail Haniyeh passed through the Rafah crossing early Sunday and is expected to meet the head of Egypt’s security services, the sources said, as speculation mounts that Egypt is seeking to negotiate a deal with Hamas to ease potential rage Monday.
Tens of thousands of Palestinians are expected to gather along the border between Gaza and occupied Palestine Monday to protest as the US opens its embassy in the holy Al-Quds.
Hamas leaders have voiced support in recent days for attempts to break the fence into the Zionist entity.
Haniyeh is expected to return to Gaza late Sunday ahead of the protests
