(LONDON) - The London-based Arab organization for human rights (AOHR) said that the security policy which is pursued by the Palestinian Authority (PA) has made the Palestinian people vulnerable and undermined their steadfastness in the face of the occupation.

In a press release on Monday, the Arab organization stated that the Israeli political and security officials every once in a while praise the PA security apparatuses and call for more cooperation, and even the PA leaders themselves have no qualms about talking about the strength of the security ties with Israel and their success in eleminating the resistance.

The Arab organization expressed its dismay and regret that the serious violations that the PA security forces commit against their people in the West Bank are supported by the European Union and the US administration.

"The European Union has delegated a police mission to train the [PA] security members how to suppress protests and use interrogation methods in the context of what they described as their efforts to promote criminal justice," the organization underlined.

"The US and Britain have security missions working on supporting and training the PA security apparatuses, and Israel also participates in these training programs and sends lecturers to the Palestinian academy in Jericho," it added.

"Despite this solid security coordination, some PA leaders come out making strange press remarks in which they demand international protection to face Israel's different repressive acts, including arrests, raids on homes, killings of Palestinians and settlement construction, as if these violations take place without security coordination with the PA security apparatuses," the human rights group highlighted.

"The Palestinian people need international protection first to face the aggression of the PA," it noted.

The organization held de facto president Mahmoud Abbas fully responsible for the political arrests taking place in the West Bank, affirming that these arrests and the violations that happen during the detention process violate the international law and the Geneva conventions.
