Solana: “El govern palestí no funciona”

Fins i tot Solana se’n adona! Ho ha explicat a l’agència Reuters: el govern d’unitat palestí està més mort que viu i ningú, ni el primer ministre ni el president , assumeixen les seves responsabilitats d’ordre i autoritat a Gaza. La guerra civil, doncs, continua.
JERUSALEM, May 24 (Reuters) - EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana called the Palestinian unity government non-functional on Thursday, fuelling doubts it would be able to overcome internal fighting and garner international support. With support from the European Union, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's secular Fatah faction formed the unity government two months ago with ruling Hamas Islamists.
Solana, speaking to Reuters and another news agency after talks with Abbas and Israeli leaders, said he did not know whether the current unity government had reached its "death". "But what it is is a non-functioning government," he said.
Solana was non-committal about whether the unity government should stay in power or be replaced, but he said the current situation was untenable. "It's important that a government takes care of the situation in Gaza ... This one or another," he said. Factional fighting verging on civil war has killed at least 50 Palestinians this month. A new ceasefire between Hamas and Fatah has taken hold but tensions remain high, particularly over Abbas's call for Gaza militants to halt rocket attacks against southern Israeli towns.
