The Palestine Papers
UK Security Plan: British MI6 Palestinian Security Plan with Annex

A British MI6 plan for Palestinian security, in which the British government discusses training officers and restoring cooperation between Israeli and Palestinian agencies, as well as other initiatives focused on withdrawal of IDF troops and building Palestinian capability.

It includes the following language about dealing with Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ): "2. Degrading the capabilities of the rejectionists - Hamas, PIJ and the Al-Aqsa Brigades - through the disruption of their leaderships' communications and command and control capabilities; the detention of key middle-ranking officers; and the confiscation of their arsenals and financial resources held within the Occupied Territories, US and - informally - UK monitors would report both to Israel and to the Quartet. We could also explore the temporary internment of leading Hamas and PIJ figures, making sure they are well treated, with EU funding."
