PA security official accuses Israel being behind spread of drugs in Palestinian society

Headline: “Abu Ali: The occupation is undermining the war on drugs and making it easy to deal in them”
      “Head of the [PA] Preventive Security Force Muhannad Abu Ali said that the common factor in all of the growing fields that were discovered in the Jenin district is their connection to groups within the Green Line (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel; the Green Line is the ceasefire line between Israel and the neighboring Arab countries, 1949-1967), which are exploiting the Palestinian situation and the financial conditions and striving to recruit some of the civilians, and particularly in Area C (i.e., land under full Israeli administration according to the Oslo Accords) which is not subject to Palestinian security control…  Abu Ali held the occupation (i.e., Israel) responsible for the spread of much of these phenomena in the Palestinian society, and prime among them the spread of the phenomenon of planting drugs, and said: ‘If these means succeed, they are liable to destroy the foundations of the public order and create a group of people that is dealing in drugs.’”
