Palestinian Authority says it could govern Gaza in case of US-enforced 2-state solution

A top Palestinian Authority official told US President Joe Biden’s administration last week that it is willing to take on a post-war role in governing the Gaza Strip if Washington commits to a “full-fledged two-state solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,” according to The New York Times.

Hussein al-Sheikh, the secretary-general of the PA’s parent Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), tells the outlet that Ramallah is seeking “a serious American initiative that would force Israel to abide by it, to commit to it. This current US administration is capable of doing that.”

He says such a solution must include an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and a resolution of the status of East Jerusalem.

Al-Sheikh claims no such deal would be possible under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his current government.
