JNS.orgThe Israeli government is seeking for a return of Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces under the command of PA President Mahmoud Abbas in Gaza and a dismantling of Hamas forces there, according to a memo.

In the memo, sent by the Israeli Foreign Ministry on June 5, the ministry instructs Israeli ambassadors abroad to demand to foreign governments that Abbas live up to his pledge to follow the so-called Quartet principles of recognizing Israel, recognizing past agreements and renouncing violence.

“Abbas must prove that the Palestinian government’s disavowal of terror—part of its acceptance of the Quartet’s conditions—is being implemented throughout the area over which the government purports to apply its sovereignty, including the Gaza Strip,” the memo said, Haaretz reported.
