AMMAN — The Palestinian Authority has issued a stiff warning to gunmen in the West Bank, saying it will “cut off the hand of anyone who tries to tamper with the security and stability” of the Palestinians. اضافة اعلان

In a statement on Monday night, the PA Ministry of Interior, which is in charge of the Palestinian security forces, said it was determined to enforce law and order in all areas of the West Bank, Israeli media reported. 

The warning came amid rising tension between the PA and some armed groups in the northern West Bank in the aftermath of the large-scale Israeli military operation in Jenin Refugee Camp earlier this month. 

The groups claim that the PA security forces have arrested several gunmen over the past few days as part of a larger campaign to end the phenomenon of “resistance” against Israel.

National Day of Resistance 
Meanwhile, multiple protests began throughout Israel early on Tuesday morning as part of the "National Day of Resistance" against the government's planned judicial reforms, with five arrested so far and one person injured.

Also, US President Joe Biden on Monday agreed to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the US, after twice refusing to host him in the White House.

The two leaders spoke by phone after months of increasing friction over Israel’s judicial overhaul process, Iran, and accelerated West Bank settlement activity.
