Israel’s Cabinet decided to retain portions of the West Bank as security interests, agreeing that they would not be turned over to the Palestinians under a further redeployment or in any final-status agreement. The areas designated would include land in the Jordan Valley and the western hills of the West Bank, buffer areas surrounding Jerusalem and Jewish settlements, military sites, holy Jewish sites and water sources.
