Abbas mulls Gaza visit in bid to end Hamas rivalry, source says

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is “seriously considering” visiting the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported Sunday, in what would be his first visit since before the Islamist group took power of the coastal enclave. Hamas won Palestinian parliamentary elections in 2006. The Palestinian secular Fatah movement, headed by Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank, did not accept the religious party’s rule in Gaza.
