Former Palestinian Security Chief: PA Terrorizing Women, Children


The Jerusalem Post reports: Some of the commanders of the Palestinian Authority security forces in the West Bank are “terrorizing” women and children, a former PA security chief said on Thursday.

Tawfik Tirawi, a former commander of the PA’s General Intelligence Service and member of the Fatah Central Committee, made the rare charge in a statement issued by his office. Tirawi did not name the commanders of the PA security forces who he says are responsible for “terrorizing” Palestinians.
