Israel handed over a second West Bank city to Palestinian Authority security control. The handover of Tulkarm took place Monday night after a dispute over a roadblock was ironed out. Tulkarm is the second of five West Bank cities that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon agreed to transfer under last month’s cease-fire declaration with P.A. President Mahmoud Abbas. Jericho was already handed over to the Palestinians.
