Hamas said that point was not up for discussion.

Dahlan, based since 2011 in the United Arab Emirates, is behind an influx of cash to prop up Gaza and detente between Hamas and Arab states including Egypt, which hosted reconciliation talks.

An official of the Palestinian Authority, the self-rule body headed by Abbas in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, said an Egyptian delegation comprised of two generals and Cairo's ambassador to Israel, arrived in Gaza to oversee reconciliation efforts.

Far from being an isolated incident, this attack represents the emergence of yet another violent militant faction in Gaza-a densely populated strip of land wedged between Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, which crams 1.8 million people into an area slightly more than twice the size of Washington, D.C. This major shift toward an even more radical and violent milieu is mainly due to a growing Salafi movement in Gaza, a new phenomenon that threatens the temporary equilibrium of what is usually a turbulent area within the Middle East. The Egyptian delegation in Gaza would also help facilitate movement through the Rafah border crossing, as well as help to solve the electricity and water crises now plaguing the Strip.

Hamas had seized control of the Gaza Strip after armed clashes with Fatah in 2007.

In previous reconciliation attempts, Hamas and Fatah failed to reach agreements on Gaza's security arrangements.

The same area was targeted by Israeli shelling two days ago, said the sources.

Barzaq said that PA President Mahmoud Abbas will commit to the democratic results of the elections.

Representatives from both sides voiced optimism ahead of the talks being held behind closed doors.

- "The dialogue committee for reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas started work under Egyptian sponsorship" adding the talks "began in the headquarters of the Egyptian intelligence to examine the files to enable a Palestinian national unity government to work in the Gaza Strip".

The talks follow a key breakthrough last week when Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah visited Hamas-run Gaza for the first time since 2015 and his ministers officially took control of government departments there.

The sources said that after that they will go back to the Palestinian territories and wait for another Egyptian invitation for a wider dialogue that will include leaders of other Palestinian factions and political powers.

Newly appointed Hamas deputy leader Salah al-Aruri, who in recent years served as the terror group's head of West Bank operations, and the organization's Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar are leading the Hamas delegation, a spokesman said.
