Palestinians help thwart Kassam attack


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israel halted the launch of a Kassam rocket in the West Bank with information provided by the Palestinian Security Forces.

The homemade rocket was set to be launched toward the center of the country, one of Israel’s most populated areas. 

The warning about the rocket is seen as a product of the successful cooperation between the Israeli army and the Palestinian Security Forces, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Other recent cases show the same spirit of cooperation, including Sunday night’s storming into Jericho of right-wing activists, where Israeli troops were allowed to enter the Palestinian-controlled area to avoid a possible violent confrontation.
