Palestinian resistance group Hamas leadership on Sunday left Gaza from Rafah crossing and headed to Cairo to hold talks with Egyptian officials, said a Hamas official. 

"The delegation is chaired by Yahya al-Senwar, the chief of the group in Gaza, and made up of Rawhi Mushtaha and Tawfiq Abu Naim, head of the security services in Gaza," Hazem Qassem, the Gaza-based spokesman for Hamas, told Anadolu Agency. 

Qassem said that the delegation would discuss relations with Egypt, the blockade imposed on Gaza and Palestine's political issues.

During the visit, which will be the first for al-Senwar since his February leadership victory, the Hamas officials are also expected to meet Egyptian intelligence officials.
