Despite attempts by Israel and the United States to block the adoption of the Palestinian authority into the international criminal police organization-Interpol, the Executive Committee decided to consider this issue at the next session. According to the decision of the EC, the question of the admission of the PA will be included in the agenda for a vote at the General Assembly of Interpol.
The vote is scheduled for Tuesday, September 26. For entry to representatives of the PA needs to enlist the support of 127 countries.
In Israel, fear that joining the Interpol, the authorities of the autonomy will be able to issue arrest warrants for Israeli politicians and military officers, accusing them of war crimes or crimes against humanity.
In addition, there is a risk that the requests of Israel and the secret information about terrorists will fall into the hands of Hamas and Fatah.
This third attempt of the Palestinian authority join Interpol. In June 2016 the governing Council of the Interpol rejected the request of Ramallah, instead creating a Commission on rules for the admission of new members.
