PA security 'block Israeli raid' on West Bank city

Nov. 20, 2012 7:01 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 21, 2012 3:03 P.M.)
TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian Authority security services on Tuesday refused to provide security coordination to Israeli forces entering the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, a PA security officer said.

He said the Palestinian liaison turned down the request because the troops wanted to enter at the time children were going to school in the morning.

The Western-backed Palestinian Authority has a coordination mechanism with Israeli troops.

Under the 1993 Oslo agreement, the PA has full security control over urban center in the occupied West Bank, but Israeli forces enter almost every night to detain Palestinians and search homes, requiring PA forces to retreat.

The PA security commander told Ma'an around 200 officers deployed around the city in front of Israeli military patrols.

Israeli forces eventually retreated, he said.

An Israeli military spokesman did not respond to a request to comment on the incident.
