A Hamas spokesman in Gaza told UPI on Thursday the group found unacceptable Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas' concessions to Israel and the United States earlier this week.

During talks in Aqaba, Jordan, Abu Mazen, as Abbas is known, pledged to demilitarize the intifada in a bid to restart talks with Israel on the "road map" to peace in the region.

The plan calls for a series of confidence-building measures between both sides culminating in an independent Palestinian nation by 2005 along with peace and security for Israel. Hamas' decision came a few hours after Israeli soldiers killed two members of the group in the village of Atil, west of the West Bank town of Tulkarim.
