PA to up hospital security after undercover IDF raid

The Palestinian Authority is upping security at hospitals around the West Bank, days after undercover Israeli forces raided a Hebron hospital to capture a terror suspect.

PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah called for such a measure several days ago, in response to the arrest, which was caught on video and drew condemnation from Palestinians and others.

The security will include PA special forces, who are normally stationed outside government offices.

Several Palestinian governors say the forces have been given orders to shoot if they find undercover Israeli forces.
