Pales­tinian stand-off

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

BETH­LE­HEM: The Pales­tinian Au­thor­ity (PA) has de­cided to up­hold a freeze on se­cu­rity co-or­di­na­tion with Is­rael that was im­posed dur­ing protests against now-re­moved Is­raeli se­cu­rity mea­sures at the al-Aqsa Mosque com­pound in oc­cu­pied East Jerusalem, a high-rank­ing Fatah of­fi­cial said.

How­ever, a re­port pub­lished on Sat­ur­day in The Times of Is­rael cited Pales­tinian sources as say­ing that PA cam­paigns tar­get­ing al­leged “Ha­mas op­er­a­tives” were still on­go­ing. The Fatah of­fi­cial said all com­mu­ni­ca­tion with Is­rael would re­main halted “un­til peace ne­go­ti­a­tions re­sumed”. Ma’an
