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.
