Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has told the Palestinian Security services to actively prevent a 3rd Intifada, Maariv daily newspaper reported.

The newspaper said that if a 3rd intifada is to be launched, Israel will target and attack the PA, and added that the PA already prevented several demonstrations that protested the Israeli occupation, in an attempt to prevent a deterioration in the political situation.

According to the newspaper, Palestinian officials believe that there have been many attempts to bring the West Bank into chaos, in a way that serves various political sides, including Hamas.

Palestinian officials also realize that the Israeli right-wing government has a potential interest in seeing the West Bank situation deteriorate, in order to escape from the international pressures to stop settlement expansion.

The newspaper added that majority of Palestinians are against a 3rd intifada, given the economic and political situation, which will help with controlling the situation in the West Bank.
