He made a first visit to Gaza in October, just less than two month to end of last summer’s Israeli war.

Prime Minister’s visit to Gaza aims at studying a Swiss-proposed plan that aims at boosting the internal Palestinian reconciliation and speeding the process of reconstruction,’’ Bseiso said.

Meanwhile Hamas spokesman, Sami Zuhri, said in an e-mailed press that Palestinian unity government has been discriminating against Gaza people.

“This government should carry out real measures to remedy these mistakes. So far this government has failed to be government for all Palestinians,’’ Zuhri said.

Hamdallah would hold separate meetings with leaders of various political factions and powers and also with deputy of Hamas Chief, Ismail Henay, in Gaza city. (Xinhua/NAN)
