Khaled Mashaal, head of the political wing of Hamas, accused the security services of the Palestinian Authority of aiding Israel in its recent wave of arrests throughout the West Bank. Mashaal made the accusation in a conversation with Palestinian prisoners at the Ktziot Prison in a cellular phone conversation. Israel Radio reported that the Hamas leader asked to delay the meeting of Paletinian factions in Cairo planned for the end of the month since, in his opinion, there was no point to extending the tahdiya, or calm among the factions. Mashaal's statements were published in Arabic-language Friday morning newspapers.
