Palestinians say reports of PA’s collapse greatly exaggerated

The Palestinian Authority has rebuffed a claim by a top Israeli minister that the PA is on the verge of collapse, calling the remarks “absurd.”

“The remarks made by this extremist Israeli minister are an obvious reflection of the evil will of his government,” PA spokesperson Osama al-Qawasmi says in response to comments by Ze’ev Elkin earlier Monday, according to the Palestinian Ma’an news agency.

Qawasmi adds that the PA is stable.

The PA will “continue to turn the PA institutions into state institutions,” he says.

Adnan Damiri, the head of the PA’s Preventive Security Services, also dismisses the claim of imminent collapse.

“Israel and Hamas are hoping for the collapse, but it won’t happen,” he says, according to the Walla news site.
