An Important Story
"Large Palestinian security force invades refugee camp next to West Bank city of Nablus in attempt to arrest wanted men responsible for attacks on IDF soldiers
Fatah turns up the heat on its opponents: A Palestinian security force surrounded large areas of the el-Ain refugee camp near Nablus Monday morning in an attempt to arrest terror operatives involved in attacks on IDF soldiers.
Palestinian sources told ynet that the majority of the operation was aimed at the capture of three wanted men from the Abu Mustafa Brigades, the military wing of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
According to these sources, the three are members of a cell which in recent months had been the subject of failed arrest attempts by the IDF, and who had, in a few incidents, even succeeded in causing injuries to soldiers......
'Plan key to PA success in West Bank'
A Fatah official in Nablus told ynet,"Unfortunately we are talking about a part of the Dayton Plan, and increasing cooperation with Israel. Whatever the Israelis can not do, the (Palestinian) Authority comes to do it for them."......
Even before the operation, a senior Palestinian official told ynet that the PA is determined to succeed in this new campaign. According to him, the PA is close to completing Phase I of the Road Map, but that unfortunately, instead of expressing its appreciation, Israel has chosen to throw additional obstacles in front of the peace process, such as the demand that the Palestinians recognize Israel as a "Jewish State."
