Palestinian Prime Minister resigns over Gaza genocide

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh announced the resignation of his government, which controls parts of the occupied West Bank, due to the increase of settler violence in the occupied West Bank and the genocidal war on Gaza.

“The decision to resign came in light of the unprecedented escalation in the West Bank and Jerusalem and the war, genocide and starvation in the Gaza Strip,” Shtayyeh, who submitted his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday, said.

“I see that the next stage and its challenges require new governmental and political arrangements that take into account the new reality in Gaza and the need for a Palestinian-Palestinian consensus based on Palestinian unity and the extension of unity of authority over the land of Palestine,” he added.

Shtayyeh’s reaction came as US exerts pressure on Abbas, to reorganise the Palestinian Authority in order to work out a new political order that could be imposed on the Palestinian state after the war.
