Harel: Israeli-PA Security Collaboration Prevents Intifada

Harel: The Israeli-PA Security Collaboration Prevents the Outbreak of Intifada

NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Israeli military expert Amos Harel said the security cooperation between Israel and the Palestinian authority precludes the outbreak of a new intifada (uprising) or any resistance activities in the West Bank.

In a TV interview on Monday, Harel stated that the last two years have been the quietest in terms of security in the West since the six-day war in 1967 thanks to the security cooperation between Israel and the PA which prevented the outbreak of popular intifada during the last mid-decade.

He also expressed his belief that there are constant orders for the resistance in the West Bank to launch attacks against Israel at every opportunity, but the strong pressure made by the Israeli army and the PA security forces has paralyzed most of the activities of the armed wing of Hamas.

Since several years, Hamas has had no leader for its armed wing in the West Bank because its activists are arrested immediately by the Israeli and PA security forces whenever they try to do something, he added.

He underlined that Israel agreed on resuming its talks with the PA in order to achieve a number of goals in its favor, most importantly, the level of security coordination with the Palestinians, noting that there are five PA security units working diligently to maintain security in the West Bank.
