Prime Minister Ariel Sharon met Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and Vice Premier Shimon Peres Sunday to put an end to a simmering turf war and present a united front to the world regarding Gaza-related issues.
Mofaz and Peres have been elbowing each other for months over who is responsible for various issues related to Gaza.
â€œBefore we talk with [Quartet envoy James] Wolfensohn, the Egyptians, Europeans and the Palestinians about the Rafah crossing, it is necessary to determine who is in charge of what issues,â€ one official involved in Sundayâ€™s talks said.
Sundayâ€™s meeting was inconclusive, the official said, and another one this time with officials representing Sharon, Peres and Mofaz was scheduled for Wednesday.
