Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal met on Sunday with Arab League chief two days after his arrival in Cairo, raising the case of mass hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails.
Meshaal told journalists that he had agreed on the course of action in talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and with Nabil al-Arabi.
He was in "full coordination" with Abbas on the issue of the hunger striking prisoners, the Hamas chief said adding that this case is to be submitted to the United Nations General Assembly.
The meeting at the League's Cairo headquarters concerned the Egypt-sponsored reconciliation deal with Fatah, Hamas politburo member Izzat al-Rishq said, in a statement on his official Facebook account.
A Palestinian MP said on Sunday that a top militant on hunger strike for nearly two weeks has been transferred to the hospital wing of an Israeli prison near Tel Aviv. Ahmed Saadat, secretary general of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, began refusing food on April 17.
The Meshaal-led Hamas delegation visiting the Egyptian capital would stress the need for Arab and international support over the prisoners' cause, al-Rishq wrote.
According to news website the Palestinian Information Centre (PIC), Meshaal, who arrived in Cairo on Friday, also met his Islamic Jihad counterpart, Ramadan Shallah, on Saturday, the website said, without saying what was discussed.
