PA should play central role in Gaza’s post-Hamas future, Blinken said to tell Abbas

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the meeting in Ramallah earlier today that the PA should play a central role in the Gaza Strip’s future if and when Israel’s goal of rooting out Hamas there is fulfilled, according to the Reuters news agency, which cites an unnamed senior State Department official.

“The future of Gaza was not the focus of the meeting but the Palestinian Authority seemed willing to play a role,” the report says.
