The Palestinian Authority is operating in Area C, which is under Israeli civil and security control, a top PA official said over the weekend. According to Lo’i Arzikat, the Palestinian police spokesperson, the PA operates undercover in Area C in order to ensure that law and order is established throughout Yehudah and Shomron.

“We have embarked on a campaign to end the security problems in the West Bank,” Arzikat told Arab media. “PA security offices are operating throughout the area,” including in Area C, “in civilian clothes to find and arrest fugitives from justice who take shelter there.”
