U.N. Envoy Says PA Must Include Gaza

The Palestinian Authority (PA) in Judea and Samaria cannot remain separated from Gaza, United Nations Middle East envoy Michael Williams told the U.N. Security Council Wednesday.

"It is important that the people of Gaza are not punished for the Hamas takeover," he said. "There is only one future Palestinian state, and it encompasses both the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Reopening the crossings to prevent the complete collapse of the Gaza economy remains a priority," he said.
