On Monday, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh formally submitted the resignation of his entire government. Shtayyeh indicated that the decision stems from the recent events surrounding the war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The move is seen as a strategic step to pave the way for the establishment of a broad consensus among Palestinians regarding future political arrangements.

Shtayyeh specifically mentioned the need for a comprehensive reevaluation of political structures in the aftermath of Israel’s war against Hamas.
