Palestinian Prime Minister vows control over Gaza Strip as thousands welcome the premier as they hope for improvements in living conditions.

Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah arrived in Gaza this last Monday for his first visit in two years, saying the Palestinian Authority would assume control of the strip after a decade of factional strife.

Hamdallah crossed the border with dozens of ministers and officials from the West Bank based PA into the Hamas-run coastal enclave at around noon.

The Palestinian group have controlled Gaza since a 2007 split but recently agreed to hand over  civilian power to a unity government.

''The government began to exercise its role in Gaza from today,'' Hamdallah said.

''We return to Gaza again to end the division and achieve unity.''

The World Students Society wishes the Palestinian students well and hopes to welcome them on !WOW!.
