Abbas and Mashaal Call on UN to 'End the Occupation'

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas's exiled leader Khaled Mashaal on Friday urged the United Nations to draw up a "timetable" for “the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories to end,” AFP reports.

The two made the appeal during talks in Doha, as fighting continues in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Qatar's state news agency QNA said.
