Bang your head against a wall before reading this

From IMEMC, also in Palestine Today (I couldn't find the Yediot article):
Israeli media sources reported on Thursday that Israel is planning to return to the Palestinian Authority light weapons and munition it confiscated during the so-called “Operation Defensive Shield” military assault Israel carried out in 2002.

Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth quoted a political official in Israel stating that Israel previously agreed to transfer thousands of light weapons to Palestinian security personnel.

The sources added that “it is not by accident that this decision was made after US secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, visited the region”.

I can only hope this was a Purim spoof that was misinterpreted by the Arab media.
