Danon to US: Reconsider funding of PA security forces

April 24, 2011 11:24

MK Danny Danon (Likud) on Sunday called on the US to reconsider its funding of the Palestinian security forces, as well as the training exercises that it does with them. Danon's comments followed an incident in which one Israeli was killed and four were injured when they were fired upon by a PA policeman near Joseph's Tomb in Nablus.

He passed this request on to Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"As a true friend of Israel, we expect that the objective of this training would be to ensure Israeli security and not to kill its citizens," he said.
