Shin Bet (Israel Security Services) head Yuval Diskin said Sunday that Iran was considering giving financial aid to the Palestinians if Europe and the US cease funding the Palestinian Authority in light of Hamas's victory in the PLC elections. Diskin told cabinet ministers that Hamas was unsure of its next move following its election victory. According to Diskin, Hamas may accept a unity government with Fatah if it means ensuring that funding to the Palestinian people continues. He added that Fatah would be making a grave mistake if it let PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas resign, Israel Radio reported.
