Palestine Security Forces Deployed To Settlements

Palestinian Security Forces Deployed Nearby Settlements

GAZA, Palestine - The minister of interior, general Naser Yousef, affirmed today that the Palestinian security forces shall be deployed nearby the Israeli settlements in Gaza Strip within the coming few hours.

It was said that general Yousef is scheduled to meet Israel Minister of defense Shaul Mofaz today's evening in Tell Aviv to discuss the maps that outline the deployment plans of the Israeli and the Palestinian sides, the evacuation and the subsequent handover of the evacuated lands.

In the West Bank city of Jenin, Palestinian and Israeli officers held a meeting at the coordination office today's afternoon to continue the arrangements relative to the evacuation from four Israeli settlements in northern West Bank.

The Ministry of Interior and National Security described the meeting as positive, affirming that an agreement has been concluded between the two sides under which the roads leading to the-be-evacuated-settlements shall be locked and alternative roads shall be opened to be used by the West Bank citizens during the evacuation.

Deputy Chief of the national security forces in the southern Gaza Strip cities Hussein Abu Abra stated today that the deployment will start in Morag settlement to the north of Rafah in south Gaza Strip.

He also affirmed that 15 thousand national security elements shall be deployed nearby the settlements calling upon the citizens not to rush to the settlements upon the evacuation so that the security forces can scan the area and remove the leftovers of the occupation.
