The Palestinian Authority resumes security cooperation with Israel

After a six-month break, the Palestinian Authority is resuming its security coordination with Israel.  “In the light of Mahmud Abbas’s international contacts and given the written and verbal commitments we have received from the Israelis, we will resume relations where they were before May 19, 2020,” the PA’s Civil Affairs Minister said on Tuesday. Palestinian PM Mohammed Shtayyeh added:  “We will resume contacts with the Israelis on financial issues, on health issues, on political issues… since Israel is ready to commit itself to the signed agreements with us.” Shtayyeh revealed that this step followed intervention by the United States, the European Union and “other countries.”
