Israel plans to withdraw troops from West Bank cities if the Palestinian Authority maintains a truce on terrorism. “One of the issues we discussed is a transfer of cities” to Palestinian Authority control, Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz told Israel Radio on Sunday, referring to bilateral security talks over the weekend. There was no immediate word on which cities could be handed over, but Israeli media named Jericho, Ramallah and Kalkilya.
