Military Liaison

Military Liaison is the official body responsible for security coordination with Israel through its District Coordination Offices (DCO). It is part of the Palestinian Authority's National Security Forces and conducts joint Palestinian patrols with the Israeli army until the Second Intifada. As other Palestinian security organs coordinated more directly with Israel, such as the Preventative Security (PS) and Generl Intelligence Service (GIS), the Military Liaison’s function was reduced to the coordination of day-to-day civil matters. Military Liaison has been led by Major General Jihad Jayyousi since 2011.
