Abbas in Cairo as Hamas rejects disarming military wing
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Tuesday held taiks with Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak after the signing of a reconciliation deal Hamas movement was put on hold. "Fatah completely supported the Egyptian proposal... but then Hamas put down obstacles to achieving a reconciliation," Abbas told reporters in Cairo, according to AFP.

Meanwhile in Gaza, the spokesman of Hamas' militay wing Ezzedeen Al Qassam Brigades said that talks about integration or disintegrate the Palestinian resistance factions has no place on the ground and cannot be done. "The dream of Al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Islamic resistance Movement Hamas, solution is a distant dream, no matter how some people tried to explain the Egyptian paper in this regard, each has its own interpretation, and therefore, this point needs to be fully clarified."

Abu Obeida added "What we can assure that the solution of the PA is easier than to solve Al Qassam Brigades or the brave resistance factions, and if there was a definition for the legitimate weapon, certainly, it is the resistance weapon. We do not accept to name the resistance as militia, Palestinian people knows that the legitimate weapon is the only one which protects the homeland and defends the dignity of the people."
