Brigadier-General Noam Tivon, the IDF commander in Judea and Samaria, and Diab El-Ali, the head of the Palestinian Authority’s Preventative Security forces, met on Thursday near Ramallah. The two agreed to increase the cooperation between the IDF and the PA forces.
Several other IDF officials were present at the meeting. Officers thanked El-Ali for the rescue of an IDF captain earlier in the week. According to IDF officials, the captain accidentally entered Jenin and was nearly lynched by an angry mob, but was rescued by PA policemen.
