Abbas calls on Hamas to accept truce deal

During a meeting in Qatar, Palestinian Authority representative Saeb Erekat reportedly delivers to Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal a message from PA President Mahmoud Abbas, asking Mashaal to support the Egyptian ceasefire proposal.

Erekat is quoted by Ynet as saying that the truce with Israel should be consolidated.

The message from Abbas states that Abbas himself will oversee a conference next month dealing with efforts to rebuild Gaza, the report says.
