Palestinian Authority: We haven’t lost control; Israel caused escalation
The PA has often come under criticism from many Palestinians because of its refusal to halt security coordination with Israel.

Palestinian officials on Sunday dismissed claims by Israeli security sources that the Palestinian Authority has lost control of areas in the northern West Bank, especially in Jenin and Nablus, and warned of more violence and bloodshed due to Israel’s ongoing counter-terrorism operations. In response to reports that Israel was pressuring the PA to rein in the armed groups, the officials said Palestinian security forces would not act as Israel’s “security agent.”

“We have entered a new phase in our relations with Israel,” said PLO Executive Committee member Ahmed Majdalani. “There is no political process and Israel is no longer fulfilling its obligations in accordance with the signed agreements [with the Palestinians]. There’s no reason why only one party should abide by the agreements.”
