PA Forces Reach Level Of 'Pre-Army'
CAIRO [MENL] -- The Palestinian Authority has raised the level of its
security forces to that of what was termed a "pre-army."
The Arab Reform Initiative asserted that PA security forces have been
significantly improved under a U.S. program led by Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton.
The report, titled "The State of Reform in the Arab World," asserted that
Palestinian security forces in the West Bank were being professionalized and
approaching that of an army.
