Terror groups agree to maintain truce

Friday, June 10, 2005 | 
Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has won a commitment from terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip to uphold the cease-fire. "When we behave wisely we will be the winners and we will put Israel in the corner, rather than have Israel put us in the corner," Abbas said after talks with terror chiefs in Gaza. However, the terrorists say they reserve the right to retaliate against Israeli military actions. The truce was threatened after Hamas shelled Jewish communities this week, killing three people. Israel has warned Abbas that negotiating with terrorists won't work. It says that as long as these groups are not disarmed, they'll have a veto over the peace process. Despite the truce commitment, Palestinians in Gaza fired several rockets at Israeli communities today. There were no injuries or damage.
