Despite the continued Palestinian unilateral bid for statehood at the UN, IDF coordination with PA security forces is continuing and last week Israel facilitated the transfer of 31 new motorbikes to the police in Ramallah.

The motorbikes – a donation from Italy and Cyprus – were transferred to the Palestinian civil police with the assistance of the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories.

The Piaggio MP3 scooters will be distributed throughout the West Bank and will assist the civilian police in quickly arriving at scenes of crimes and traffic accidents. The training of the Palestinian police is overseen by the EUPOL COPPS.

The IDF is still on high alert in the West Bank amid concern that violent demonstrations will continue. It is also working to prevent so-called settler “price tag” attacks against Palestinians, which it fears could increase following the revelation on Sunday that rocks were likely thrown at the father whose car overturned near Hebron on Friday, killing him and his infant son.
