JERUSALEM (AFP) - Iran was responsible for training and funding the Palestinian cell that sent a suicide bomber who killed one Israeli and injured a dozen more at an Israeli train station last week.

Monday's edition of the Yediot Aharanot daily quoted security sources as saying Iran's Revolutionary Guards sponsored the attack jointly claimed by two armed groups, and added it was a bid by hardliners to undermine reform efforts by Palestinian primier-designate Mahmud Abbas.

Avi Dichter, head of the Israeli domestic intelligence agency Shin Beth, told ministers at the weekend that Iran was pressing various extremist Palestinian factions to act against Abbas and prevent his efforts to impose a ceasefire and resume peace talks.

Abbas has called for a demilitarisation of the 31-month Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation and a suspension of anti-Israeli attacks.
