Israel will only allow the Gaza-West Bank convoys to operate if it is clear that there is no threat to Israeli citizens, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz announced on Sunday. During the weekly cabinet meeting, Mofaz surmised that the crisis in the Palestinian Authority could delay, or even cancel, the PA elections. The defense minister continued, saying that despite the weakening of the Fatah, Israel would not work to boost PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and possibly would work against him, as in the decision not to open a safe passage between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. In addition, Mofaz noted the rise in terror activity in the West Bank, and promised that Israel would increase its anti-terror operations.
