The new Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah said Friday that the unity government has no practical authority in the Gaza Strip, whether for dismantling the armed militias there, integrating Gaza's security mechanisms in the West Bank services, or tax and power payments by citizens. In a New York Times interview, Hamdallah said he was not satisfied with the coalition government set up by Fatah and Hamas and if it was up to him, few of the ministers lined would have been appointed.
