Israel is weighing a proposal to withdraw from the northern Gaza Strip. The Israeli army coordinator for activities in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Maj. Gen. Amos Gilad, met Saturday night with the Palestinian Authority’s security affairs minister, Mohammed Dahlan. The talks, at the residence of the U.S. ambassador to Israel, came amid heavy American pressure on the two sides to save the “road map” peace plan following a week of escalating violence, the Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported.
