During a recent visit to Doha, Qatar, President Abbas met with officials to discuss expanding the Palestinian Authority’s influence in Gaza after the war. US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken had previously advised Abbas to prepare for the post-war period by forming a more representative government and developing plans for reform and rehabilitation.

According to reports, Abbas briefed Blinken 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 Gaza 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 Gaza 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 regional reconstruction.
