The Palestinian Authority announces it will halt security coordination with Israel in response to a deadly IDF raid in Jenin this morning.

Deputy PA Prime Minister Nabil Abu Rudeineh proclaims that “security coordination with the occupation government no longer exists as of now.”

Halting such coordination is a move that the Palestinians have tried in the past with little success.

Israel and the PA maintain security ties in a shared effort to contain Islamic terrorists. Palestinian moves to suspend this coordination have been short-lived, in part because of the benefits it enjoys from the relationship and also due to US and Israeli pressure to maintain it.

A Palestinian official said the PA also plans to file complaints with the UN Security Council, International Criminal Court and other international bodies.
