Israel’s army chief told government ministers on Thursday that the Palestinian Authority has boosted its efforts to combat terrorism aimed at Israeli soldiers and civilians, Channel 2 reported.

IDF Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot briefed the security cabinet on Thursday, telling ministers that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had ordered his forces to clamp down on anti-Israel incitement on social media.

The PA security services have also bolstered their efforts to curb anti-Israel violence, the IDF chief said. Palestinian police have conducted arrests against would-be terrorists, Eisenkot told the ministers.
