(TPS) Palestinian Authority (PA) officials are warning that the PA’s weakness and the estimated end of Mahmoud Abbas’ era are a good time for Hamas to rise, as Fatah is engaged in a survival battle and the leadership’s future depends on Abbas’s moves.

While the PA and Fatah understand that the Arab League’s decision over the weekend rejecting the deal of the century may prove to be ineffective, Hamas, on the other hand, has won support from Iran and Turkey.

Hamas is expecting a Fatah delegation to visit Gaza within days, and the Strip is waiting to see if Hamas takes the lead in the battle against Israel, even at the price of ending the understandings with Israel.
