Palestinian President Announces Unity Government Will Dissolve

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced the national unity government he formed with Hamas last year will dissolve.
Abbas did not make any mention of a timetable for resignation in his announcement Tuesday night. Abbas said the move was "because Hamas didn't let it work in Gaza."
The government was formed last year before the war between the Islamic militant group Hamas and Israel. Hamas violently seized Gaza from Abbas forces in 2007, leaving him governing just parts of the West Bank.
