Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh and his “cabinet” in Gaza have resigned, Hamas spokeswoman Israa al-Mudallal said, “paving the way for the new ministers of the consensus government.”
Haniyeh welcomed the new cabinet as “a government of one people and one political system.”
“We’re leaving the government, but not the nation. We’re leaving the ministries but not the question of the nation,” Haniyeh said in a televised speech.
Somewhat of an usual event here, especially when talking about a one people, one political system, and previously swearing in a “unity” government.
