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.

    Sounds like a veiled threat. They should do it so their citizens realize the PA leadership is getting rich while they suffer. In any case Israel can handle any challenge with grace and restraint. Unlike the PA and Hamas Israel values human life and that is priceless. The truth will come out eventually.

    the PA needs the talks to fail as peace would depose fatah and hamas and end the leaders corrupt perks. Everything is a show.
