Leaks claim Palestinian ’collusion’ - Al Jazeera English
One cable in the WikiLeaks documents quotes Yuval Diskin, the head of Shabak, Israel’s security service, as saying his agency has "friendly, professional and sincere" information exchanges with the PA, which governs the occupied West Bank.
In a meeting between Diskin and general Keith Dayton, the then-US security co-ordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority, on October 13, 2006, Dayton suggested to appoint a Palestinian “security interlocutor”.
In response to Dayton’s question of who Diskin would choose to work with if he could make the choice, Diskin presented his estimations of the primary Palestinian security players of that time; Rashid Abu Shabak, Tawfic Tirawi and Mohammed Dahlan.
Diskin told Dayton that Tawfic Tirawi [head of the Palestinian General Intelligence] is capable of accomplishing some of the things that need to be done in the West Bank. “He is motivated, cruel and decisive, but has no standing in Gaza.”
