Bibi: PA Refuses Israeli Offer of West Bank Security Deal

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has, time and again, shown its hatred for Israel, her people, and the Israeli military. But, JNS reports, the PA rejected an offer from Prime Minister Netanyahu that would have fulfilled the PA's wish and pulled the IDF from the West Bank:

The proposal stipulated that the Israel Defense Forces would cease operating in Area A, which includes the larger Palestinian cities and villages, except for cases of extreme urgency referred to as "ticking bomb" situations. The plan suggested a pilot program of these steps would be implemented in Ramallah and Jericho.

However, Netanyahu said the Palestinian Authority rejected the proposal, Israel Hayom has learned. After news of the negotiations broke in the media, the prime minister called a meeting of Likud ministers at which he stressed the issue was "no longer relevant."

Although the Oslo Accords call on the PA to control security in the West Bank, the IDF has been operating in Area A since 2002’s Operation Defensive Shield.
