Sorgente: PA officials: Security cooperation with Israel is ongoing – Middle East Monitor

PA officials told the Israeli newspaper that President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks to severe security cooperation, as a result of Israel’s planned annexation of the occupied West Bank and Jordan Valley, “are for media consumption”

 

Palestinian Authority (PA) officials have reiterated to Israel Hayom newspaper that security cooperation with Israel is ongoing, Safa news agency reported yesterday.

According to the news site, the PA officials told the Israeli newspaper that President Mahmoud Abbas’ remarks to severe security cooperation, as a result of Israel’s planned annexation of the occupied West Bank and Jordan Valley, “are for media consumption”.

The PA officials said that Abbas just renewed a 20-year-old order to reduce the level of the security cooperation with Israel, stating that the order is only to stop carrying out joint PA-Israeli patrols during Israeli raids of Palestinian areas.

“Abbas’ declaration was prepared only to put pressure on the new Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz, who will be a prime minister in one and half years’ time,” the officials told Israel Hayom according to Safa.
