Hamas will make decisions about how to handle its resistance against Israel, including if and when to use force, in consultation with more moderate Palestinian groups, the movement's leader Khaled Mashaal was quoted as saying by The Wall Street Journal on Saturday.

How to manage the resistance, what's the best way to achieve our goals, when to escalate and when to cease fire, now we have to agree on all those decisions as Palestinians," Mashaal said in an interview in Cairo.

He added that decisions on "negotiations with Israel, domestic governance, foreign affairs, domestic security and resistance and other field activities" against Israel, would all be determined in consensus between Palestinian factions.
