Israel’s Cabinet is expected to convene Wednesday to approve the first withdrawal from the West Bank called for in the agreement signed in Egypt over the weekend. Under the terms of the pact, Israel will transfer 7 percent of West Bank land from sole Israeli control to joint Israeli-Palestinian control. Israeli officials plan to present the Palestinian Authority with the redeployment maps on Wednesday night.
