Israeli Finance Minister Yair Lapid on Monday called on the international community to pull together a massive aid package for Gaza, conditioned on the Palestinian Authority returning to power in place of the Islamic militant group Hamas. Lapid said that the Western-leaning Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is the legitimate authority in Gaza, which has been blockaded since Hamas seized control there in 2007.
