Palestinian group responds to request from Mahmoud Abbas.

    Palestinian rockets attacks have increased dramatically in recent years

    While Islamic Jihad is not the only group to fire rockets, it has repeatedly resisted calls from Abbas to end its attacks on Israel.

    A halt in rocket fire by the group would be a rare success for Abbas, who hopes to revive peace talks with Israel.
