Palestinian security forces patrolled Bethlehem on Tuesday following the withdrawal of Israeli troops. The police patrolled near the Church of the Nativity as an Israeli army curfew was lifted and Israeli troops withdrew to positions outside the West Bank city. The withdrawal was carried out Monday night in accordance with an agreement reached between Israeli and Palestinian Authority officials for a gradual cease-fire.
