Hamas Forces Leave Abbas's Gaza Home

In what appears to be another step in the implementation of the Hamas-Fatah unity agreement, Gaza security forces on Wednesday began leaving Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas's house in Gaza City.

Sources close to the issue in Gaza told the PA-based Ma'an news agency that the house, which is located in Tel al-Hawa in western Gaza, will be handed over to a committee representing Abbas.
