 Amid reports of collapse: US urges Israel to strengthen PA

A senior Biden administration official who visited Israel this week urged security officials to take steps to strengthen the Palestinian Authority amid reports that the PA is on the brink of collapse.

The call was made by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Israel and PA Affairs Hadi Amr, reports the Times of Israel.

During his visit, Amr held a number of meetings, including with a senior IDF leadership. The official said the US expects Israel to move forward with previously promised projects to improve the lives of Palestinians and bolster the Palestinian economy.

It is noted that the US spokesman's statement came after Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar warned Benjamin Netanyahu about that the leadership of the PA could collapse, leading to a worsening of the security situation.
