Cairo - PA interior minister Sa’eed Siyam has underlined that the Palestinian people were not in need of American training camps but rather wanted Palestinian security apparatuses with Palestinian agenda to serve the Palestinian citizens.
He told the PIC in an interview that Palestinians view with suspicion any camp supervised by the USA because the American administration wishes to incite strife in the Palestinian arena and fight Hamas.
The minister was commenting on news of a secret American training camp being built for security elements loyal to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas in Jericho.
He urged the PA presidency to say its word on reports of the secret camp and the arms shipments that entered the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
