Palestinian sources told Ynet on Monday that Egypt conditioned the departure of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh from the Gaza Strip by pledging that his international visit would not include Turkey and Iran.
Haniyeh agreed, thus allowing his departure for Cairo.
Haniyeh is also expected to visit Qatar and Russia after his talks with Egyptian intelligence chiefs regarding the arrangement with Israel.
At the same time, the Return Marching Steering Committee announced that protests on the border fence with Israel will resume this coming Friday after three weeks in which Hamas prevented them.
