what does the state of palestine do?
the palestinian authority sovereignly administers two zones: the gaza strip, and area a of the west bank. in addition, the palestinian authority represents palestinian population to the international community.
currently, the palestinian authority is split into two rival governments: the hamas-led government in gaza; and the fatah-led government in the west bank.
the palestinian authority is much like any other government. it handles security and the regular functioning required of any state, ranging from census duties to archaeological excavations to building roads and other infrastructure.
