The International law enforcement agency Interpol is set to vote on Palestinian Authority (PA) membership despite intensive Israeli and US lobbying against it, news agencies reported yesterday.

Board of directors of the international police organisation, which is currently meeting in Beijing, is voting on whether to accept or deny the PA’s police force as members today.

The Israeli news website i24 said that “Israel is concerned that Interpol membership would enable the Palestinian Police to request ‘red notices’ against Israeli citizens, asking the General Secretariat to assist foreign police forces in locating them with a view to seeking their arrest or extradition”.

According to the Israeli news outlet, an Israeli official reported Israeli expectations that the PA would be accepted “despite narrowly losing a membership vote in 2016”.

They were accepted and are now a member of Interpol. Netanyahu is freaking out.

Interpol approves Palestinian membership bid


Secret ballot seen as diplomatic win for Palestinian statehood, as Israel was actively seeking to postpone the vote.
