Palestinians lose trust in PA

Even though Palestinians have lost trust in the Palestinian Authority, analysts believe they will not go as far as demanding its collapse as there is no alternative.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Fatah leader and deputy in the Palestinian Legislative Council Hussam Khodr told Reef FM on Sept. 6 that the Palestinian Authority (PA) is facing a real crisis due to young Palestinians’ lack of trust in their government.

Khodr said the cause of the crisis is the PA’s refusal to address any challenge facing the Palestinian cause because it is prioritizing its personal interests over national ones. Khodr called on the PA to rebuild trust with the Palestinian people in the West Bank and establish direct ties with them.
