Liaison officers in the West Bank will stop dealing with the Palestinian Authority after the Hamas Cabinet takes office and switch their focus to international organizations and ordinary Palestinians, an IDF official said Sunday. Shlomo Dror, an IDF spokesman on Palestinian affairs, said that the liaison offices throughout the West Bank will continue functioning after the Cabinet takes office. The office will no longer work with the Palestinian Ministry of Labor, but will deal with individual Palestinian workers, Dror said. It also will deal with medical emergencies through hospitals and aid groups, not the government, he said. "The liaison office is going to continue to operate. We will work more with the Palestinian people and less with the Palestinian Authority we will try to work with international organizations and local hospitals," Dror said.
