Palestinian security forces reportedly raided Area C village without Israeli approval

Aug. 24, 2016 10:55 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 24, 2016 11:00 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinian security forces reportedly entered a Jerusalem district village of the occupied West Bank in Area C on Tuesday, Israeli media reported, in a highly unusual move in an area officially under full Israeli military control.

According to Israeli Channel 2, dozens of members of the Palestinian National Security Forces entered the village of Anata in the early hours on Tuesday as part of a search for Palestinian suspects wanted in the deaths of two Palestinian police officers, as part of a security crackdown turned deadly in the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

The Palestinian security forces reportedly detained the suspects in Anata before returning to Palestinian Authority- (PA) controlled areas.

Israeli authorities confirmed to Channel 2 that Palestinian security forces did not coordinate with them before entering Anata, which is located in the 60 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control.

According to the Oslo Accords, the West Bank is divided in three zones, which include Area A, the 18 percent of the territory officially under PA control; Area B, the 22 percent under administrative Palestinian control and Israeli military control.

In contravention of the agreement, Israeli forces regularly raid Area A, whereas PA forces only enter Israeli-controlled areas in extremely rare circumstances.
