Fatah Militia Vows to Ignore Future Cease-Fire

(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu Toameh - Fatah's armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigades, said Thursday it will ignore any future cease-fire agreement with Israel and strongly attacked Egypt for its efforts to end the intifada. The group vowed "to continue the jihad" and said its members would continue to launch terrorist attacks against Israel on both sides of the Green Line.

Omar Sulieman, head of Egyptian Intelligence. The plan, which has been rejected by most of the participants, calls for a temporary lull in terrorist attacks against Israel.
