At present, no one in the PA seems to be able to control Gaza Strip and the West Bank - which are two parallel areas.
Reformist Dahlan lacks meaningful influence in the West Bank, and Rajoub has no real hold in Gaza. Because of the fragmented layout of the West Bank,
it is doubtful whether a single figure exists there that can control these Palestinian cities by himself.
The current Palestinian leadership is fragmented, weak, and uncoordinated. Even worse, they are primarily preoccupied with personal infighting.
The PA security forces have failed in their mission to enforce law and order and they are mainly responsible for the anarchy and lawlessness.
