Sharon to talk with Abbas in his family ranch in Israel

The Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, dismissed three security commanders yesterday after a Hamas mortar barrage of Jewish settlements in the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/hotspots/2001/11/23/21757.html ' target=_blank>Gaza Strip, just two days after the ceasefire declaration.

In response, the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/11/01/39010.html' target=_blank>Israeli government called off a meeting with senior Palestinians to discuss an array of confidence-building measures, including lifting some roadblocks and releasing several hundred prisoners.

But it said it would not undermine confidence in Mr Abbas's commitment to curb violence, provided the Palestinian security forces dealt with those responsible. Mr Abbas ordered Palestinian Authority forces to prevent further attacks, saying they were against the national interest, informs the Guardian.

According to the Bloomberg, the shelling yesterday was the first sustained outbreak of hostilities since Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon pledged at a summit in &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/main/2002/04/25/28025.html' target=_blank>Egypt on Feb. 8 to curb violence in parallel and resume peace talks.
