Israel is willing to review the maps outlining its next withdrawal from portions of the West Bank, according to an aide to Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Danny Yatom declined to say what Israel was willing to reconsider, but he did indicate that the land to be transferred would exclude areas close to Jerusalem. The Palestinian Authority rejected the previous set of maps because it sought control over those areas.
