GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on Wednesday condemned the Palestinian Authority's recent arrests of the faction's supporters.

Gaza-based PFLP leader Kayid al-Ghoul told Ma'an Wednesday that the detention of the group's members harmed relations between the various Palestinian factions and indicates that the PA is attempting to quell resistance against Israel.

"No matter what the justifications are, going after resistance fighters can't be acceptable," al-Ghoul said.

This indicates that the PA prioritizes security coordination with Israel over resistance, which is supposed to unite Palestinians, he added.

Al-Ghoul's comments came soon after the PA detained and interrogated three PFLP supporters from Duheisha refugee camp south of Bethlehem, and after summons were delivered to several other supporters from Aida and Azza refugee camps north of Bethlehem, according to PFLP sources.

"There are limits to the degree of patience the PFLP can show as the PA security forces continue to detain and summon supporters," one of the group's officials told Ma'an, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

This kind of behavior by the PA is a "free service to the Israeli forces," he said.

On Thursday, witnesses in Azza camp told Ma'an PA security sources arrested four people, some of them affiliated to the PFLP.

I would think of it as the PA acting to reduce violence, establish peace, enforce the rule of law, and halt reckless (and illegal) terrorism.

No David! It is the PA being complicit in an illegal occupation! Rather than refusing this arrangement of being a security force, the PA and all Palestinians should refuse any co-operation with this oppression. I realize how difficult this is, and I speak as an outsider, therefore I do not condemn the cooperation but express what ought to be.

Let's make a qualified guess: David is a Zionist, that's why he likes the PA subcontractors.
