As the Palestinian Authority (PA) fights to save its role as a legitimate representative of the Palestinian people, experts say its days are numbered, now that the Oslo Accords have proved to be a "total failure".
Amid the latest political developments that saw the United States withdraw millions in aid to Palestinians and recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the outcomes of a 25-year-old agreement based on a framework of "peace" bring into question the very existence of the PA.
"It [Oslo Accords] has been used as a smoke screen to entrench the occupation and for further Israeli colonisation," Yara Hawari, a fellow at the Palestinian policy network, Al Shabaka, told Al Jazeera.
"Many Palestinians have been questioning the PA's role for quite some time now. Much of the criticism stems from their involvement in security coordination with Israel, which portrays them as native enforcers of the occupation," she said from the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
