Political source: Israel may offer Palestinians West bank pullout
A political source in Jerusalem has said that the US is leading the way for a new route to continuing negotiations with the Palestinians which include examining the option of offering the Palestinians an additional Israeli pullout in Judea and Samaria and transferring defense authority to the Palestinian Authority.


"The steps are being coordinated with Israel", said the senior source, "the goal for both sides is to find a route that will lead to a year of continuous talks which will end with an agreement." (Roni Sofer and Attila Somfalvi)
