Israel Detains over 3600 Palestinians in 2017

Prompted partly by Abbas's sanctions and fears of financial and political isolation, Hamas signed an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation agreement with his Fatah movement in October and agreed to hand over administrative control of the Gaza Strip to the Palestinian Authority. That move, authorized by PA leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), was meant to pressure the Hamas leadership to loosen its control of the coastal strip.

A Gaza economist said the restoration of electricity from Israel, the enclave's main electricity supplier, could raise power delivery to six hours.

He said neither U.S. President Donald Trump nor Israel's ruling Likud party "would be able to change the identity or the features of Jerusalem, which has always a Palestinian, Arab and Islamic face and identity". During the electricity crisis, some Gazans received more than four hours of electricity a day, thanks to supplies of fuel sent from Egyptian.

Palestinian security sources in Gaza said two Hamas surveillance points had been hit.

Leah Goldin, the mother of Lt. Hadar Goldin, turned directly to the people of Gaza in a statement posted on the Arabic Facebook page of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Major General Yoav (Poly) Mordechai.

The group said in a letter written in Hebrew on its Twitter account "The residents of Gaza, mothers, fathers and children don't accept abducting bodies because it's inhuman". The move will restore an additional 50 megawatts of power to Gaza. In June, the PA cut its electricity payments for Gaza to Israel by 35%, which led Israel to slowly reduce the number of megawatts it supplied the Strip from 120 to 70.
