An Israeli official predicted that two-thirds of settlers in the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank will leave before this summer’s pullout begins. Some settlers have pledged to resist the evacuation, and so far just 396 of 1,100 families have started the process to leave. But Yonatan Bassi, who heads the Israeli government agency that will compensate evacuated settlers, predicted a flood of departures in the two weeks prior to the pullout, scheduled to begin Aug. 15.
