Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday spoke by telephone with the exiled leader of Hamas, Khaled Mashaal, a presidential aide said. The aide, Nabil Abu Rdeheh, did not immediately provide details on the conversation. The discussion came a day after an errant Israeli artillery barrage killed 19 Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip, prompting Mashaal to call for a renewal of attacks against Israel.
