The Palestinians ended security coordination with Israel in the occupied West Bank after a deadly Israeli military raid in a flashpoint city on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

“In light of the repeated aggression against our people, and the undermining of signed agreements, including security, we consider that security coordination with the Israeli occupation government no longer exists as of now,” said a statement issued after a meeting of Palestinian leadership.
