IDF, PA Collaboration in West Bank Faltering

(Ynet News) Elior Levy - IDF sources said Tuesday that cracks have been appearing in relations with Palestinian security forces in the West Bank. PA security forces stopped their IDF counterparts from pursuing their activities on at least two occasions in the past few weeks. According to a Palestinian source, the UN's upgrade of the PA's status has prompted the change. An Israeli security source said that while a change in the two parties' collaboration has been noted, together with a "notably different atmosphere," the channels of communications are still open. An Israeli message has been relayed to the Palestinians, warning them against allowing the events in the West Bank to spiral out of control.
