Lapid: Gaza aid should be tied to restored PA rule

Finance Minister Yair Lapid is calling on the international community to pull together a massive aid package for Gaza conditioned on the Palestinian Authority returning to power in place of the Islamic militant group Hamas.


Lapid says that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is the legitimate authority in Gaza, which was been blockaded since Hamas seized control there in 2007.


If Hamas were removed, the blockade would end, achieving Hamas' own stated purpose in its firing of rockets on Israel, the finance minister says.
