Hamas seized power in Gaza in 2007 after bloody street fighting began when Fatah refused to recognize Hamas' election win and give up control.
The Gaza Strip has been under siege by Israel since 2007.
The Hamas and Fatah movement signed a consensus agreement on establishment of Union Government on 23 April 2014 and elections, reconciliation government was established on June 2, 2014, but due to political separation of two entities, government He couldn't fulfill his duties in Gaza.
The meeting comes as part of moves to end a decade-long split between the internationally recognised Palestinian Authority, based in the occupied West Bank, and Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip.
After crossing from Israel into Gaza on Monday Mr hamdallah said: "We return to Gaza for the sake of achieving reconciliation, national unity and ending the division".
The Qassam Brigades, Hamas's armed wing, are believed to have 25,000 members and Hamas has a stockpile of thousands of short-range rockets, as well as scores of longer-range Grad rockets that could strike Israeli population centers. Israel has blockaded Gaza since then and continues to view Hamas as a terrorist organization with close ties to Israel's rival, Iran. This is part of a deal with the US-backed dictatorship in Egypt.
On Gaza City's busy Omar al Mukhtar Boulevard, people are cautiously optimistic."The government in Ramallah is certainly most welcome, but we also know that files have piled up over the past 11 years that need to be dealt with and I don't think they have a magic stick to resolve everything overnight", says Raed Issa.
Mr Abbas also ruled out any lifting of the crippling sanctions including halting payments for Gaza's electricity and slashing salaries of government employees that he imposed on Gaza over the last six months in response to Hamas's naming of an administrative committee to govern Gaza.
That statement contradicted President Abbas who on Monday said that Hamas would have to hand over its weapons to the unity government.
Fatah and Hamas have attempted reconciliation several times in the past, even forming a united government in 2014, but it quickly disbanded.
According to Haniyeh, the Hamas movement is prepared to hold a dialogue with the Fatah movement "in order to unite the decision of war and peace", in reference to the issue of Hamas participation in PLO institutions.
Hamas reiterated on Tuesday that it won't surrender its weapons, and still expects Abbas's cuts to social services in Gaza to be restored in the short term.
This is far from the first attempt at Palestinian reconciliation - and Hamas will want something in return for concessions.
Israel has fought three wars with Hamas since 2008.
