Hamas fighters have threatened to launch a fresh wave of attacks against Israel to undermine ongoing peace talks that the group has described as "useless". The announcement follows the first face-to-face talks in nearly two years between Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, and Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, in the US capital. The two agreed to meet regularly to work out a framework for peace.But no sooner had the statements been made then they were quickly rejected by Palestinian factions vowing to fight on.Hamas said 13 different armed factions, including themselves and Islamic Jihad, would join forces to launch attacks against Israel.
