Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu convened his Cabinet to discuss the Wye agreement after saying he had received American assurances that the Palestinian Authority will arrest 30 wanted Islamic terrorists. Netanyahu created a ministerial committee to examine West Bank maps in preparation for the 13 percent Israeli redeployment called for under the accord. The Cabinet is expected to vote on the pact before the committee submits its findings.
