Hamas firm

Gaza, June 7 (Reuters): The militant Islamic group Hamas repeated today it will keep up suicide attacks on Israelis unless Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas retracts peace pledges made at a US-led summit.

Hamas leaders had yesterday called off talks with Abbas on ending violence and said they would talk to other factions to forge a unified position on the US-Israeli-Palestinian summit in Jordan last Wednesday.

“This matter is final unless Mahmoud Abbas retracts his Aqaba speech,” a Hamas leader, told al-Jazeera television today.

Abbas’s office said he would try to renew talks with Hamas during a visit tomorrow to the Gaza Strip.
