The Palestinian National Authority is the interim self-government body that exercises partial civil control over the Gaza Strip and 167 islands in the West Bank known as "Areas A and B", established as a consequence of the 1993-95 Oslo Accords. Following elections in 2006 and the subsequent Gaza conflict between the Fatah and Hamas parties, its authority had extended only in areas A and B of the West Bank. Since January 2013, the Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority uses the name "State of Palestine" on official documents.
