JNS.org – Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas threatened to dissolve the unity government between his Fatah faction and Hamas.

“Hamas must recognize that the West Bank and Gaza are a single unit, with one legal system and one weapons policy,” Abbas said at a press conference in Cairo over the weekend, according toIsrael Hayom.

“If Hamas does not accept these conditions, I will announce to the foreign ministers at the Arab League conference that I am concerned about proceeding with this risky process and that I will be suspending the reconciliation deal with Hamas and dissolving the unity government,” he said.
