PRC leaders join Palestinian factions in Cairo for ceasefire talks on Monday

April 27, 2008 12:08 P.M. (Updated: April 27, 2008 12:08 P.M.)
Gaza - Ma'an - A delegation representing the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) will head to Cairo on Monday at Egypt's invitation in order to discuss a possible ceasefire with Israel, a prisoner exchange, and Israel's siege of the Gaza Strip.

According to PRC spokesperson Abu Mujahid, PRC Secretary-General Hajj Kamal Nayrab, known as "Abu Awad," and Mohammed Al-Baba, the director of the PRC's information office will attend the Egyptian-sponsored meetings.

Abu Mujahid said that "the PRC believes Israel has always broken previous ceasefire agreements." He said a ceasefire should be bilateral and comprehensive, meaning that it must halt all Israeli hostilities and lift the siege imposed on the Gaza Strip. There must be guarantees that Israel will stick to any agreement that may be signed.

The PRC began as an armed movement to defend refugee camps in Gaza from Israeli incursions at the beginning of the second Palestinian Intifada, or uprising. The group is composed of fighters and security officials from numerous other Palestinian factions.

Leaders from the left-wing Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) are also attending meetings with Egyptian officials in Cairo on Monday.

Egypt is leading efforts to mediate between Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip and Israel.
