PA police chief of Tulkarem: Israel is “the number one cause of the spread of drugs in the Palestinian areas, in order to destroy the young generations and thus destroy the whole society”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Apr. 23, 2018

 
Headline: "Against marijuana"
       "The crop of this drug [marijuana] is one of the crops that have spread in recent years in the homeland's various districts, and it is largely concentrated in Area C (i.e., areas of the West Bank under full Israeli administration according to the Oslo Accords) due to the full Israeli security control over them… Actually, the lack of Palestinian security control in these areas has opened the door wide before dealers of this affliction. It is known that the [PA] Security Forces' arrival in these areas requires coordination with the Israeli side, which makes it difficult for the forces to enter them at the right time… Tulkarem Police Chief Azzam Jabara said that Israel is the main cause of the spread of the [marijuana] nurseries and [its] distribution in Palestinian society…
He explained that the occupation intentionally does not pursue those who distribute drugs in the Palestinian territories, despite it knowing who they are, and this is while those who distribute them among the Jews are arrested and severe measures are taken against them. He added that this proves that the occupation is the number one cause of the spread of drugs in the Palestinian areas, in order to destroy the young generations and thus destroy the whole society."
