Both the Israeli government and Hamas firmly denied on Thursday a report that they were holding talks. Earlier Thursday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told Al-Arabiyeh television that representatives of Israel and Hamas have been meeting to discuss ending Israel's "siege" of Gaza and ban on exports. "There are meetings between Hamas and Israel at the Erez crossing and other places," Abbas told Al-Arabiyeh. According to Hamas, Fatah was trying to make it appear as if Hamas was talking to Israel in order to increase its own credibility.
