GAZA CITY (Ma’an) – The mayor of Gaza City Rafiq Makky on Monday submitted his resignation to the Hamas-run government’s minister of local governance.
Makky told Ma’an that it was the second time he submitted his resignation.
The first time, he explained, was three months ago, but it was turned down. In both cases, the decision to resign was due to “personal and health-related” reasons, he added.
The mayor highlighted that he was asked to stay in office until an “appropriate replacement” is found.
