Palestinian Authority to resume cooperation with Israel

A senior Palestinian official said Tuesday that the Israeli-Palestinian relationship will "return to how it was."

The Palestinian Authority (PA) announced on Tuesday that it would restore ties with Israel, renewing civil and security cooperation after a six-month-long standoff that kept millions in tax revenues from reaching cash-strapped Palestinians in the West Bank.

Hussein al-Sheikh, the PA’s civil affairs minister, tweeted on Tuesday that “the relationship with Israel will return to how it was” and that the Palestinians had received written and verbal pledges from Israel to stick to previous agreements.
