Palestinian factions stepped up efforts, on Thursday, to finalize a Hamas handover of the Gaza Strip to President Mahmoud Abbas as protests broke out in the enclave against the U.S recognition of Jerusalem as Zionist Entity’s capital.
Under Egyptian mediation, the factions have sought to end a schism dating back to 2007, when Islamist Hamas seized Gaza in a civil war with Abbas’s Fatah. A Dec. 1st, deadline for giving Gaza to Abbas was postponed to Dec. 10th, amid disputes.
U.S. President Donald Trump’s announcement on disputed Jerusalem on Wednesday infuriated Palestinians, who see the city as their future capital, prompting Hamas to call for a revolt against Israel and demand that Abbas abandon American-sponsored peace-making.
