Israel was expected to withdraw from a further 5 percent of the West Bank in the next few days. The move comes after Israel and the Palestinians ended their deadlock over the size of the next redeployment. Under the accord, the withdrawal follows the original map presented by Israel. Israel, however, will reportedly be open to Palestinian requests for the next withdrawal, slated for Jan. 20.
