Jordan vowed Tuesday to put on hold its dispute with Hamas so as not to increase pressure on the Palestinians, currently struggling with violence between rival factions. "The deterioration of the situation has affirmed his Majesty's eagerness to spare the Palestinian people from sliding into a civil war," Jordan's Prime Minister Marouf al-Bakhit told reporters. "Jordan has risen above its simple differences with Hamas." Jordan announced this spring that it had uncovered a plot by Hamas to carry out attacks on public institutions and officials in the kingdom. It also said it had uncovered a large weapons cache that included Iranian-made Katyusha rockets and anti-tank missiles. The official Petra news agency reported Monday that al-Bakhit had invited his Palestinian counterpart, Ismail Haniyeh, for talks in the Jordanian capital with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, in a bid to help end the violence wracking the Palestinians.
