How the PA Views Security

(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu Toameh - Gen. Adnan Damiri, spokesman for the Fatah-dominated Palestinian security forces in the West Bank, said Wednesday that Hamas was exploiting security coordination between the PA and Israel to discredit the Palestinian leadership in the West Bank. "We're not ashamed of security with the Israeli side," he explained. "This is a coordination between a warden and his prisoner. We are using this coordination to meet day-to-day needs of the people because this occupying warden controls everything." He said PA security forces recently seized many weapons belonging to Hamas in the West Bank, including rocket-propelled grenades and automatic rifles. "These weapons were not intended for use against the occupation," he said. "They were being stored to attack the Palestinian Authority."
