Vice Premier Haim Ramon has initiated a new, smaller-scale realignment plan that would see Israel withdrawing from 70 percent of the West Bank territory and evacuating settlements, mainly isolated ones.


Ramon told Ynet that the new plan, which was first reported on Channel 10 Monday evening, "is still in its initial stages," and that it represented his views, not those of the prime minister.


The new minister estimated that such a plan would take years to materialize.


"The question is what to do in the situation we're in today. We have to find a bilateral solution that would enable reaching understandings with both the settlers and the Palestinians," he explained.


Ramon said that he was not afraid of confrontations with the settler public over his new plan. "I have always treated them fairly," he added.
