A senior Hamas official has dismissed any reconciliation talks with rival Fatah group. His remark on Thursday followed claims by the group that they emerged victorious after the group survived a relentless three-week offensive by Israel on the Gaza Strip. Sami Khater, a member of the Islamic group's Damascus-based branch, said Arab and international donations to reconstruct the Strip should go directly to Hamas and not to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, whose faction rules the West Bank. Khater said Abbas and his Palestinian Authority cannot be trusted. He also said that a Hamas delegation will travel to Cairo this weekend for talks with Egyptian mediators on ways to consolidate a Gaza cease-fire in place since last Sunday.
