CAIRO Nov 19 The exiled leader of the
Palestinian group Hamas said on Monday Palestinians must end
their divisions and warned Israel it would find it had made a
"mistake" if it launched a land invasion.
Khaled Meshaal, speaking at a news conference in Cairo,
urged Palestinians to unite under a single vision, a reference
to the split between Hamas in Gaza and West Bank-based Fatah of
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
He called on rights groups to "expose" Israeli "crimes"
against Gaza, especially those he said had been perpetrated
against children and civilians. Meshaal also asked for support
from Egypt, which borders both Gaza and Israel.
