While diplomatic relations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority remain strained, the Hamas-led government concluded its first official business deal with an Israeli firm late Thursday night. The contract - between the Paz Oil Company and the PA government - establishes Paz as the exclusive gasoline supplier for the PA. The deal, set to go into effect on January 1, 2007, is expected to save the PA some $18 million, Israel Radio reported.
