In April 2017, PA President and PLO chairman Mahmoud Abbas decided to use his economic control over Gaza to force Hamas to cede power to his PLO forces.
During the talks, Hamas repeatedly demanded that the PA end its sanctions and restore its fuel payments to Israel in order to restore full electricity to Gaza or permit Qatar to pay for them.
Sisi’s alleged plan involved establishing a Palestinian state in the area, and even resettling so-called Palestinian “refugees” in the Palestinian state in Gaza and the Sinai.
With no economic opportunities, Gaza’s captive population in turn has no better option than to serve as human shields for Hamas terror operatives in their assaults against Israel.
They would have an option other than serving as human shields for Hamas terror groups attacking Israel.
