The Palestinian consensus government has failed to meet its commitment to rebuild the war-torn Gaza Strip, former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniya has said.The national consensus government took office in June following a reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Fatah movement of Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, ending seven years of rival administrations in the West Bank and Gaza."Unfortunately, the government has not managed to prove it is the government of the entire Palestinian people," said Haniya, the Gaza-based deputy head of Hamas's politburo.His remarks, broadcast on Hamas's Al-Aqsa television, were made several hours after eight ministers and more than 40 other government officials from Ramallah arrived to kickstart the reconstruction of Gaza, which has yet to begin.
