Hamas Leader to Visit

Hamas Leader to Visit

A delegation from Palestinian resistance movement Hamas headed by the new leader of the movement’s political bureau, Ismail Haniyeh, plans to visit Iran in the near future, according to a Hamas official.
Osama Hamdan, the head of the Hamas international relations department, said Haniyeh heading a group of Hamas officials will come to Tehran soon as part of a tour of regional countries, Tasnim News Agency reported.
On May 6, Hamas, the Palestinian political movement that rules the Gaza Strip, elected Haniyeh, 54, as its political chief, replacing Khaled Meshaal.
It comes as the group is introducing changes to its organizational structure.
Haniyeh, who lives in Gaza, has a reputation for being pragmatic and flexible. His election is seen by some analysts as being in line with the movement’s decision to accept a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, a position he has long supported.
