After the war, Abu Mazen to focus on security and rehabilitation of Gaza

In Doha, Qatar, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with Prince Hamad bin Jaber Al Thani to discuss expanding the PA’s influence in the Gaza Strip following the war. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken had previously advised Abbas to prepare for the post-war period by establishing a more representative government and creating plans for reform and reconstruction.

Reports indicate that during their meeting, Abbas briefed Prince Hamad on ongoing preparations for a new government, a rehabilitation plan, and reforms to the PA’s administrative, legal, and economic systems. Hamas officials expressed their willingness to cooperate with the Palestinian Authority on rebuilding the Gaza Strip but emphasized the need for a government and Reconstruction Authority that includes a range of Palestinian political forces and independent national figures.

Hamas pledged not to disrupt efforts to rebuild the Strip and support its residents in recovering from the effects of the war. The visit highlighted the ongoing efforts to address post-war challenges in Gaza and underscored the importance of cooperation between Palestinian political forces for the region’s reconstruction.
