Israel authorized the transfer of 5,000 Palestinian police from the West Bank to the Gaza Strip to maintain security during next month’s Gaza withdrawal. Daniel Ayalon, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, announced the agreement Wednesday at Hadassah’s annual conference in Washington. Ayalon said the gesture showed Israel’s goodwill in encouraging the Palestinian Authority to face down terrorists, and suggested that Israel might allow more policemen to be transferred.
