PA’s premier says Ramallah won’t take over Gaza without plan that includes West Bank

If Israel topples the Hamas terror group’s regime in the Gaza Strip, as it has vowed to do, the Palestinian Authority will not go back to governing the territory unless there’s a “comprehensive” solution involving the West Bank as well, the PA’s prime minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said Sunday. The PA, he explained, would not sweep into the Palestinian coastal enclave on the wave of an Israeli military victory.

“To have the Palestinian Authority go to Gaza and run the affairs of Gaza without a political solution for the West Bank, as if this Palestinian Authority is going aboard an F-16 or an Israeli tank? I don’t accept it. Our president [Mahmoud Abbas] does not accept it. None of us will accept it,” Shtayyeh told the UK’s Guardian newspaper in an interview in his office in Ramallah published Sunday.
