The Palestinian Authority on Thursday suspended its security coordination with Israel after Israeli occupation forces killed nine Palestinians, including an elderly woman, during a raid in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.
The Al-Ghad TV reported that the Central Committee of the Al-Fatah Movement and the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) held a meeting during the day, chaired by Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, and agreed on a number of decisions including informing the Israeli side that the Palestinian Authority would cease all forms of security coordination with Israel in response to the Jenin crime.
The decisions were officially announced on Thursday afternoon during a press conference held in the city of Ramallah in the central West Bank.
During the conference, presidential spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh said the PA will ask the United Nations Security Council to implement the decision to provide protection to the Palestinian people, under Chapter VII.
