U.S. OKs Plan To Accelerate PA Training
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has approved a plan to accelerate the
training and equipping of Palestinian security forces.
Congress has passed legislation that included $109 million for training
projects meant to significantly expand the security forces of the
Palestinian Authority. Under the measure, the administration of President
Barack Obama would oversee the training and deployment of 10 battalions, or
more than 5,000 troops, by 2011.
