New Palestinian PM Ishtaye sworn in before President Abbas

Illustrative Palestinians confront Israeli forces near the border with Israel east of Khan Younis in the southern Gaza Strip

Meanwhile, Abbas said he does not think it is useful to talk with the United States President Donald Trump about any solution or issue, after he recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moved the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The 18th Palestinian government since the establishment of the Palestinian Authrity in 1995 was sworn in according to a presidential decree issued by Abbas, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Palestinian Authority government is based in the occupied West Bank, while Islamist movement Hamas rules the Gaza Strip.

Shtayyeh was named Palestinian prime minister on March 10, replacing the independent university president Rami Al-Hamdallah.

Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtayeh, a veteran peace negotiator and harsh critic of Gaza's Hamas rulers, and his 22-member cabinet returned to President Mahmoud Abbas's office on Sunday to take the oath of office a second time.

Hamas said in a statement that the new government "resorts to unilateralism and monopoly of power".

The PA has been squeezed by steep United States aid cuts, with the crisis exacerbated by a dispute with Israel over the withholding of some 5 percent of the monthly tax revenues it transfers to the Authority.

Israel said the sum it is holding back matches money used by the PA to pay stipends to families of militants in Israeli jails. "We are waiting, because the Israeli elections are over and we are ready to talk".

"The Palestinian cause is passing through hard circumstances, but Palestinians and their leadership are responsible", he noted.
