Negotiators from rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Islamist group Hamas will discuss security in the Gaza Strip at unity talks in Cairo on Tuesday, including a proposal that would see Fatah security personnel deployed to Hamas-dominated territory.
Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh said in a statement on Thursday that both groups reached an agreement upon a mediation by Egypt.
Palestinian sources said conquest and Hamas will organise a press conference on details of agreement at noon.
The two sides had been meeting in the Egyptian capital this week with the aim of ending a crippling decade-old split between the rival factions.
Egypt has helped mediate several attempts to reconcile the two sides in the past and form a power-sharing unity government.
"The sides will discuss the security issue, especially in Gaza, in the way that serves the home front, enforces the rule of law in a professional and national way and is not factional", said Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum.

Hargan, who was deputy secretary of the agency, previously served on Trump's transition team for HHS. Before coming to Washington, D.C., Hargan worked as a lawyer in Chicago.
The Western-backed mainstream Fatah party lost control of the enclave to Hamas, considered a terrorist group by the West and Israel, in fighting in 2007.
Hamas's capture of Gaza in 2007 ended an earlier - if short-lived - unity government that was established after Hamas swept 2006 Palestinian legislative polls.
Hamas Politburo member Ezzat al-Rishq, who is part of his party's delegation in the Egyptian capital, wrote on his Twitter account on Tuesday morning that Hamas "is pursuing, with desire and determination, a real national reconciliation with our brothers and partners in the homeland".
Last week, Palestinian Authority prime minister Rami Hamdallah visited Gaza for the first time since 2015 and his ministers officially took control of government departments in the territory.
Sissi has stressed that he believes reconciliation between Fatah and Hamas could pave the way for Middle East peace.
Last week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with Sissi in NY last month, denounced the reconciliation efforts, saying any future Palestinian government must disband the Hamas terror group's armed wing and sever its ties with Iran. Multiple previous reconciliation talks have failed.
