The Palestinian Authority will not sever its ties with Israel or halt security coordination between the Palestinian security forces and the IDF despite the latest wave of violence and tensions, a PA official in Ramallah said Sunday. Also, the PA will not allow Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) to undermine security and stability in the West Bank, the official told The Jerusalem Post. He also called on Israel to stop its “provocative and aggressive” measures and practices against the Palestinians, particularly during Ramadan, which began on Saturday.

The official’s statements are an indication of the PA leadership’s desire to prevent a further escalation of tensions with Israel, especially in the aftermath of the recent terrorist attacks in Israel and the killing of Palestinian gunmen and activists by the Israeli security forces. The PA security forces were making a “big effort” to stop Hamas and PIJ from launching attacks against Israel “because this does not serve the interests of the Palestinian people,” the official said.
