Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is seriously considering the possibility of firing Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and forming an emergency cabinet that would govern until a date has been set for new parliamentary elections, a source close to Abbas said on Saturday. Meanwhile, an Egyptian security delegation met in Gaza City on Saturday with Haniyeh and urged him to resolve his differences with Abbas. The delegation, headed by Ra'fat Shehateh and Muhammed Ibrahim of Egypt's General Intelligence Service, was dispatched to the Gaza Strip following a phone conversation between Abbas and President Hosni Mubarak. Tensions between Abbas and Haniyeh's Hamas movement reached their peak over the weekend, with supporters of both sides fighting street battles in various parts of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
