Ya'alon: Israel Can't Rely on the Palestinian Authority for Security

Israel's defense minister tells security conference that there's no link between a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Iranian nuclear program or instability in the Arab world.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Tuesday that, from a security standpoint, the Palestinian Authority is not a responsible neighbor on which Israel can rely. Speaking at a security conference at Tel Aviv University, Ya’alon noted that last year the PA arrested more than 1,000 people associated with Hamas in the West Bank, but none were ever brought to trial.
