Israeli settlers faced off with Israeli security chief Avi Dichter in the West Bank. The head of the Shin Bet security service came to Hebron on Tuesday to show the flashpoint city to his successor-designate, Yuval Diskin, as he completes his five-year term. Far-right settlers flocked to the scene, reminded Dichter that he initially had opposed the government’s plan to withdraw from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank as a security liability, and demanded to know why he had not resigned.
