Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas during an interview with Palestine TV said the decision between war or peace was not only up to Hamas, but was in the hands of the Palestinian leadership.

He confirmed that Hamas targeted Fatah members in Gaza and condemned their public executions. "Kill spies within the means of the law," he said, "not in the streets."



He also noted there was no difference between the original Egypt-mediated cease-fire and that which was ultimately signed this week."
