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 General Intelligence Service (GIS), the Military Liaison’s function was reduced to the coordination of day-to-day civil matters.

Major General Jihad Al-Aaraj is the current head of Military Liaison. The department was previously led by Major General Jihad Jayyousi between 2011-2017.
