Head of Egyptian Intelligence Omar Suleiman told Hamas' Syria-based leader Khaled Mashaal on Tuesday to urge Hamas to relinquish its rule in the Palestinian Authority in order to solve the problems within the Palestinian people. During a meeting between the two in Damascus, Suleiman proposed for Hamas to oversee the government via the parliament where the organization has a majority. The ultimatum set by PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas for Hamas to agree to a unity government was due to expire later Tuesday.
