Abbas calls for ‘one law,’ no militias in PA-ruled Gaza

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says that after the PA returns to Gaza, its leaders “don’t want to see all sorts of militias” in the territory. “There must be one authority, one law and one gun — like every other country in the world.”

He demands that “no one interfere in our internal affairs, just as we don’t interfere in theirs,” a likely reference to US and Israeli demands that Hamas disarm and recognize Israel as part of the reconciliation agreement between it and the PA.

He also says that “any country that wants to offer aid must do so via the Palestinian Authority.”
