Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas rejected an international effort to impose his government’s rule on the Gaza Strip it was learned on Thursday.
Western governments sought to advance a United Nations Security Council resolution that would confer upon the Ramallah administration a mandate to rule Gaza, which is currently in the hands of Abbas’ arch rival, Hamas.
