    GAZA, (PIC)-- The Egyptian embassy in Gaza is reportedly preparing to reopen its office in Gaza city as a high-profile delegation from the Egyptian intelligence is set to visit the Gaza Strip soon, Egyptian and Palestinian sources said.

    Quds Press quoted eyewitnesses and local sources in Gaza city talking about activity inside the embassy's compound in the city's suburb of Remal that was closed for the past five years.

    According to the sources, workers where seen cleaning inside the embassy and rearranging everything inside in order to make it ready once the Egyptian government decides to reopen it.

    Egypt's Mubarak has transferred the embassy from the Gaza Strip to the West Bank in the aftermath of the internal clashes between Hamas and Fatah in 2007 in clear sign of support to Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas.

    It is good to see Egypt seems to be starting to change its policy and reposition it in a manner in which they can help the Palestinians and enact policies that don't explicitly make their lives any harder.
