Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said on behalf of the Palestinian Authority that he is ready to take power in the Gaza Strip if a comprehensive political solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis can be found. Palestinian President Abbas believes that the only solution to the Israeli-Palestinian crisis is a two-state solution. Abbas confirmed this once again when he met US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
Since the creation of a separate Jewish state in Israel, Palestinians have been confined to Gaza and the West Bank. Gaza and the West Bank are two different places.
The West Bank is under the Palestinian Authority, and President Abbas resides in this West Bank. Abbas represents the ‘Fatah’ political party. Hamas is considered the rival of the ‘Fatah’ political party. Until 2007, the Gaza Strip was held under the Palestinian Authority, and in 2007, Hamas came to power. Hamas consists of a political wing and an armed wing.
Israel, the United States, and the European Union consider Hamas a terrorist organization. Israeli forces are currently clashing with members of the armed forces of Hamas. Israel’s goal is to root out Hamas from Gaza and oust them from power.
