RAMALLAH: Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas announced on Tuesday that the Ramallah-based government would resign within the next 24 hours, several senior Fatah officials said.

“Within 24 hours the Palestinian government will resign,” Abbas told members of the Revolutionary Council of his Fatah movement in Ramallah, according to several officials who attended the meeting.

Earlier, the Council’s secretary general had said that the government would step down within 24 hours over its inability to act in the Gaza Strip.

“The government will resign in the next 24 hours because this one is weak and there is no chance that Hamas will allow it to work in Gaza,” said secretary general Amin Maqbul.
