Another Palestinian group signs up to truce

The militant Palestinian group the Popular Resistance Committees announced that it was signing up to a three-month freeze on anti-Israeli attacks called by other major factions last week.

“We agree to a truce of three months on condition that Israel frees Palestinian prisoners, ends assassinations, incursions and settlements and lifts the siege of (Palestinian leader) Yasser Arafat,” the Gaza-based group said in a statement. Palestinian security services arrested Thursday several members of the group, accusing them of carrying out rocket attacks on the Kfar Darom Jewish settlement in southern Gaza.
