Abbas Cooperating on Limiting September Riots
Israel's security forces and the Palestinian Authority are cooperating on containing the riots expected in September, when the PA asks the United Nations for recognition as a full-fledged state. This – according to a report in IsraelDefense.com's Hebrew edition.
The PA security forces are preparing to keep possible riots from deteriorating into mass assaults on Israeli communities, or a "third intifada."
Abbas has reportedly given instructions to keep riots in Judea and Samaria on a "low flame" in September. PA forces are supposed to prevent rioters from crossing certain "red lines" around IDF bases and Jewish communities.
