Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah shakes hands with Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza City on October 2
Palestinian parties Hamas and Fatah announced a breakthrough in reconciliation talks on Thursday, with Hamas saying that the two rivals have reached a deal.
Al-Nuno gave no further details on the content of the deal.
A Hamas official said details were expected to be released at a 12pm news conference in Cairo, where unity talks between the rival factions began on Tuesday.
The talks marked the latest in a series of attempts to end a decade-long Palestinian territorial, political and ideological split that has crippled Palestinian statehood aspirations.
But both sides hope that the deal's proposed deployment of security personnel from the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority to Gaza's borders will encourage Egypt and Israel to ease their tight restrictions at border crossings, a badly needed step to help Gaza revive its economy and improve the living standards of its two million residents.
Hamas seized Gaza from Fatah in a near civil war in 2007 and the two factions have been at loggerheads ever since.

The latest reconciliation efforts come as US President Donald Trump has sought to revive peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and met separately with Abbas and Netanyahu on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY last month.
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi said on Sunday the Egypt-backed reconciliation talks between the PA and Hamas are "preparation" for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. Meanwhile, Azzam Ahmad, one of the leaders of the Fatah delegation, told Reuters that while the negotiations would include the government offices in Gaza, the main focus would be on the topic of security in Gaza due to its controversial nature.
"We want to extend the rule of law to Gaza as [has been done] in the West Bank", Qawasmeh said in a statement.
