RAMALLAH, West Bank, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei reportedly says all Palestinian factions will be invited to Egypt next week to negotiate a cease-fire.

The Jerusalem Post reported the announcement followed Monday's meeting between Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman and Mossad chief Meir Dagan.

The report said formal invitations will be presented to the heads of the Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad on Wednesday, after much progress on Israel's demands for disarming the factions.

Suleiman also met with Qurei and Chairman Yasser Arafat. The Post said during that meeting, a halt to the construction of the security fence was suggested as a confidence-building measure.
