NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided Nablus overnight Wednesday without coordinating with Palestinian Authority security services, Palestinian officials said.

Security officials told Ma'an that this is the first time in years that Israeli forces have entered Area A without first coordinating with Palestinian security forces.

Israeli military vehicles raided the Tunis and Rafidia neighborhoods of Nablus and Balata refugee camp without notifying the Palestinian liaison department.

According to security coordination protocol as part of the Oslo Accords, Israel's military liaison department must notify its Palestinian counterpart when Israeli forces enter Area A.

After notification, Palestinian security forces withdraw officers from the street and public places until the Israeli military activity is finished.

A Palestinian security official told Ma'an that the unprecedented Israeli action reflects a new trend against the Palestinian Authority.

Locals said that during the raids Israeli soldiers dropped match boxes in the streets with a phrase in colloquial Arabic reading "Beware! Hamas is inflaming the West Bank."

Meanwhile, Israeli forces raided over 200 homes in the Nablus village of Awarta overnight Wednesday.

Israeli forces damaged furniture and other belongings during the inspections and detained Ayman Hani Darawsha, 25, and several other unidentified men.

Soldiers forced dozens of men into the street and threatened to detain them under administrative detention, locals added.

Hamas has repeatedly criticized PA security coordination with Israel as a "crime."

Abbas said last week that security coordination with Israel was in the Palestinians' "interest" and pledged there would be no new intifada, or uprising.

In reality both the Israeli and Palestinians have gain of the three missing settlers. For one Israel is trying to cripple Hamas in the West Bank and show they have control over the occupy territories in hope to dissolve the unity. And second the Palestinians also benefited out of the 3 missing settlers that the kidnapping strengthen the unity. So while the three missing playing hide and seek both Palestinians and Israelis are gaining ground, one by force and the other diplomatically.

Now with the Hamas-PLO unity government, there is no point to Israel raiding Nablus after notifying the Palestinian security, since that is the same as notifying the Hamas militants that they seek to arrest & detain.

Since they usually coordinate with PA security and this time they did not, it would indicate that they didnt want the PA to know. Maybe they felt the PA would tip off the wrong people.

'According to security coordination protocol as part of the Oslo Accords, Israel's military liaison department must notify its Palestinian counterpart when Israeli forces enter Area A.' Pooh. Israel has been breaking its word since it was founded. You might as well sign an agreement with a cat.

Notice that it occurs to neither Unity #3 nor ben Zalman #4 that Israel is under any obligation to honor its word.

Israel can mess with factions to divide &rule(for the last 67yrs)but it can't handle NATIONAL Palestinian unity,unless it outright gasses the non-Jews.Question is can PA,Fatah &Hamas handle Palestinian national unity??Maybe PA did know,&just played dumb(like
