The two leaders are also expected to discuss arrangements to run the border in cooperation with Egypt.
Abbas and Olmert will also discuss the needed arrangements to follow-up on negotiations conducted by the Israeli Foreign Minister, Tzipi Livni, and Chief Palestinian Negotiator, Ahmad Qorea’.
On Wednesday at dawn the Palestinian resistance destroyed part of the Wall separating the southern Gaza Strip city of Rafah from Egypt using five makeshift bombs.
Shortly afterwards thousands of Palestinians flocked through and started to buy food and fuel supplies from Egypt to bring back to the Coastal region The Rafah crossing, located in the southern side of the Gaza strip, is the only way for Palestinians to leave or enter the region, since June 2007; the crossing has been closed by the Israeli and Egyptian troops.
