A high-level Palestinian security delegation arrived in Washington this week for consultations with their American counterparts, two sources familiar with the matter told The Times of Israel Saturday. They were the first such meetings since US President Joe Biden took office five months ago. The delegation from Ramallah was headed by Palestinian Authority General Intelligence Services chief Majed Faraj. Faraj was one of the only PA officials to maintain contact with the US during the previous administration, which Ramallah boycotted in 2017 after former president Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The Biden administration has restored relations with the PA, announcing the return of hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian assistance.
