JNS.orgPalestinian security officials warned over the weekend that a third intifada might be imminent, despite Israeli assessments to the contrary.

Israel Defense Forces officials have deemed that recent attacks on Israel are “atmospheric attacks” that have not been directed by any of the major Palestinian terrorist groups.

But a report compiled by the Palestinian Authority’s security forces, leaked to the media over the weekend, warned that chances of a third intifada are very high. The report recommended that the PA formulate contingency plans to combat the possibility that a violent uprising would erupt, so that it would not be “dragged after the street like in the Second Intifada.”

“There is a lot of rage on the ground over the difficulties in the peace process and the continued settlement construction,” a senior Palestinian security official told Israel Hayom. Under these conditions, “an intifada is very likely,” the official said.
