Notes[edit]

  1. ^ acting to 30 December 2013
  2. ^ The Palestinian Authority renamed itself the State of Palestine on 6 January 2013 (a move not recognized by Israel). Do not confuse with the "State of Palestine" proclaimed on 15 November 1988 by the Palestinian National Council (PNC) in Algiers which remains a putative state, de facto ineffective despite partial international recognition.
  3. ^ as Head of Political Department of Executive Committee of PLO
