Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Thursday that Palestinian factions have agreed to halt all acts that could invite Israeli aggression, but insurgents quickly denied his claim. At a meeting Wednesday, all factions agreed to cease "all actions that, by their nature, give others an excuse to attack us," Abbas said in a speech before a new crop of presidential guards. But Abu Obeidah, a spokesman for Hamas' military wing, said no such agreement had been reached.
