A Hamas source, in an interview with Al-Arabiya TV, stated that the group is uninterested in the Gaza Strip transitioning to the government of Mahmoud Abbas due to its perceived corruption.

According to the source, Hamas aims to establish "an honest national Palestinian government with full consensus among all Palestinian factions." He further mentioned that negotiations are scheduled to take place in Moscow.

Previously, it was announced that an "inter-Palestinian meeting" would convene in Moscow on February 28-29, inviting representatives from Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP).

The stated goal of the Russian Foreign Ministry is to "overcome the internal split."

The last "inter-Palestinian meeting," initiated by the Russian Foreign Ministry, occurred in February 2019. It was anticipated that a "Moscow Declaration" would be adopted to reconcile differences among Palestinian factions. However, Hamas and Islamic Jihad declined to sign the document, leading Fatah to apologize to Russian authorities.

This upcoming meeting in Moscow, gathering representatives from prominent Palestinian factions, transpires amid a five-month-long conflict initiated by a massive incursion of terrorists from Gaza onto Israeli territory, resulting in the deaths of approximately a thousand Israeli citizens and military personnel.

The IDF is actively engaged in a military operation within the Gaza Strip, which resulted in the deaths of over 10 thousand terrorists and tens of thousands of Gaza residents (according to the Hamas Ministry of Health).

International observers note that the strip has suffered significant destruction, rendering it nearly uninhabitable. Nearly all Palestinian factions are participating in armed confrontations with the Israeli army in Gaza, as well as in Judea and Samaria.

It's confirmed that the Hamas delegation at the Moscow negotiations will be led by Mousa Abu Marzook, the deputy of the Politburo of the terrorist organization, while the Fatah delegation will be headed by Azzam al-Ahmad, a member of the PLO executive committee.

Although Islamic Jihad, the PFLP, and the DFLP have confirmed their participation, the leaders of their respective delegations have yet to be announced.
