The Palestinians want international peacekeepers to help them take over the Gaza Strip after an Israeli pullback. “I think we need international forces or peacekeepers at that time,” Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qurei told the European Parliament on Wednesday, referring to an Israeli proposal to remove 17 of its 21 settlements in Gaza. European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana responded positively to Qurei’s call.
