Just days after officially filing for membership in the International Criminal Court in The Hague, the Palestinian Authority will now seek entry into Interpol, a Ramallah official told the Ma'an news agency over the weekend.

Ahmad al-Rabie, the head of the PA's international relations and cooperation department, told Ma'an that the Palestinians plan to submit a request to join Interpol ahead of the global law enforcement agency's annual meeting sometime this year.

The PA previously sought membership in Interpol in 2011, but was instead admitted as an observer since it had not attained full-fledged statehood.
