Gaza ministers await Israeli approval to visit Ramallah

June 3, 2014 7:59 P.M. (Updated: June 4, 2014 7:30 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The new Palestinian government’s Gaza ministers may be forced to be sworn in through a video conference if Israel insists on refusing to allow them to travel the West Bank.

Minister of Women's Affairs Haifa al-Agha said that the Gaza ministers are yet to start in their position because they haven’t been sworn in in front of President Mahmoud Abbas.

They still await Israel’s approval to allow them into Ramallah, and if they do not receive it they will be sworn in via a video conference, she said.

Al-Agha, Minister of Public Works Mufeed al-Hasayneh, Minister of Economy Mamoun Abu Shahla, and Minister of Justice Salim al-Saqqa are the four ministers from Gaza.

They all met Tuesday for the first time, and they joined in a video conference call with the cabinet in Ramallah.
