PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to resign Reuters reported

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has offered his resignation to President Mahmoud Abbas, sources told Reuters.

Reuters stated that Mr Fayyad’s office refused to comment on the report.

The report comes after a difficult few weeks for the already fraught relationship between the two leaders. Rumours have emerged that Mr Abbas has wanted to sack Mr Fayyad, and last month Mr Fayyad accepted the resignation of the finance minister, against the wishes of Mr Abbas.
