GAZA (Ma'an) -- Gaza security forces on Wednesday began leaving President Mahmoud Abbas' house in Gaza City, witnesses said, evacuating the property in light of the recent national reconciliation deal between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

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

Spokesman for the Gaza ministry of interior Iyad al-Bizim had told Ma'an last week that the Gaza government was ready to hand over the houses of president Abbas as well as late president Yasser Arafat.

The reconciliation deal, which was reached at the end of April, brought together the leading Palestinian political parties after nearly seven years of political division.

This is no gesture but a serious, necessary step towards clinching the reconciliation by concrete actions. Israelis might choose to make a similar concrete action like handing Orient House back to thePalestinian authorities to indicate their desire to continue discussions.
