PA to crack down on armed gangs, truce violators

Palestinian Interior Minister Nasser Yousef met Saturday with Palestinian security chiefs in Gaza to coordinate a crackdown on growing lawlessness in Palestinian areas, Palestinian officials said.

‘There will be a general campaign on different levels, starting from today, to stop any kind of activity against the law and to prevent anyone from violating the law,’ said Tawfiq Abu Khoussa, a spokesman for the Interior ministry.

Palestinian security forces will move to disarm gangs and truce violators, but would refrain from disarming Palestinian resistance groups who are committed to the truce signed during the Cairo talks.

On Thursday, Palestinian security forces arrested two members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the military wing of the ruling Fatah movement, over rocket and mortar attacks on Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip.
