GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza City Mayor Rafiq Makki said Tuesday that the minister of local governance had accepted his resignation.

Makki told Ma'an that Muhammad al-Farrah accepted the resignation that he submitted in November 2013.

Since November, Makki has been serving as an interim mayor, he said. A new deputy mayor, Nizar Hijazi, will be taking over the position on Sunday.

Makki resigned in November for what he called "personal and health-related" reasons.
