An ongoing Palestinian Authority crackdown on crime and corruption in the West Bank, including the arrest of senior security officers, is being viewed in Israel as a milestone for the PA as it imposes its rule and authority throughout the territory.

The operation began several weeks ago but in recent days has gained traction with the arrest of a number of senior Palestinian security officers, some of whom were trained by the US in Jordan.
