Description

President Mahmud Abbas has told members of his Fatah movement that the government would resign within 24 hours. Another Fatah official has said the resignation is because of the government’s inability to act in the Gaza Strip. Hamas ruled the coastal enclave for seven years but stepped down last June when a consensus government was sworn in. However, the Ramallah-based government recently complained that it has been unable to extend its authority to Gaza, which was devastated by a deadly 50-day Israeli war last summer. Last month, a government delegation was also forced to cut short a trip to Gaza because of a long-running dispute with Hamas over salaries of government employees in Gaza.
