Egyptian sources stated Thursday that the Egyptian embassy in Gaza will soon reopen and to start usual operations, the Quds Press reported.The embassy will officially open after a high profile Egyptian security delegation visits Gaza in the near future. The embassy is located in Al Rimal neighborhood, north of Gaza City.

The embassy was shut down five years ago, but officials were recently seen in the building while workers started cleaning and reorganizing the building to make sure it is ready for the official reopening day.

An Egyptian source told the Quds Press that the Egyptian embassy will be reopened soon, and will resume its duties as the official Egyptian embassy, immediately after the new Palestinian unity government starts its duties.

The Egyptian embassy moved its office to the West Bank in 2007 following the bloody internal clashes between Hamas and Fateh gunmen in the Gaza Strip.

Furthermore, Lieutenant Mohammad Ibrahim of the Egyptian Intelligence, along with Egyptian security officials, will be visiting Gaza soon to observe the implementation of the Palestinian unity agreement.

Ibrahim was in the Gaza Strip, heading an Egyptian security team, before the Fateh-Hamas armed clashes took place in June 2007.
