Hamas has announced that it is dismantling the Gaza administration it created half a year ago. On Sept. 16, the movement also said that it is willing to hold general elections in the Gaza Strip. Representatives of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas rushed to Cairo, where they met with Hamas' Gaza chief Yahya Sinwar and with his deputy Khalil al-Hayya. Sinwar was the man who decided to create the shadow government that nearly brought disaster to both Hamas and the people of Gaza. The two Hamas men discussed with Abbas’ representatives their desire to bring an end to the crisis between Hamas and Fatah as quickly as possible.
