IDF Spoke: PA Unity Government Could Bring Escalation


Spokesman Motti Almoz of the Israel Defense Forces said, Tuesday, that cooperation between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas could bring about an escalation in the security situation in the field.

Interviewed by IDF Radio, the brigadier general said, "The pattern we have seen in the last week is of lone terrorists who decide to take explosives or weapons and carry out an attack without infrastructure or a hint of intelligence. There is no direct connection, but in indirect circles, the Fatah-Hamas government could express itself, in the end, through actions in the field with messages that could get progressively extreme."
