Hamas: PA obstructing Gaza reconstruction
The PA insists that its Ramallah-based government be in charge of the reconstruction, including the funds channeled by various countries and international parties.

Hamas does not trust the Palestinian Authority regarding the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip, senior Hamas official Musa Abu Marzouk said over the weekend. Abu Marzouk, deputy head of the Hamas politburo abroad, also said that his group rejects any attempt to link Gaza reconstruction to the issue of a prisoner exchange agreement with Israel. Abu Marzouk’s remarks, in an interview with the Arabi 21 online newspaper, are yet another sign of the ongoing dispute between Hamas and the PA over reconstruction efforts in the Hamas-ruled coastal enclave, in the aftermath of last month’s fighting with Israel.

The PA insists that its Ramallah-based government be in charge of the reconstruction, including the funds channeled by various countries and international parties. PA President Mahmoud Abbas told Fatah leaders in Ramallah last week that “the State of Palestine” is the only address for any effort to rebuild the houses and buildings that were destroyed during the Israel-Hamas fighting.
