The Palestinian Authority partially controls the West Bank but is a fierce political opponent of Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip.

Abbas, 87, has been the leader of the Palestinian Authority for the past 18 years. His initial four-year term was extended due to the inability to hold elections there.
