Report: Palestinians to join Interpol

The Palestinian news agency Ma'an reported that the PA has decided to join the International Criminal Police Organization, widely known as Interpol.


An official from the PA's Ministry of Interior said the move would result in several international benefits for Palestine, including the ability to take part in fighting cross-border crimes and fighting terrorism, money laundering, corruption, arms trade, and human trafficking, according to the report. The source said joining would also benefit the Palestinian police as they would receive training courses, expertise, and information from the organization.
