Egypt’s Mursi Meets With Mashaal and Islamic Jihad, MENA Says

Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi met with Hamas’ political chief and a delegation from the Islamic Jihad, amid efforts to end the exchange of rocket-fire between Israel and the Hamas-led government, the state-run Middle East News Agency reported.

The meeting late yesterday included a Hamas delegation led by Mashaal, the head of the Islamist movement’s politburo, and another from the Islamic Jihad, led by the group’s secretary-general, MENA said, citing a statement from the presidency.
