Series of Israeli-Palestinian Security Meetings in West Bank
Israeli and Palestinian officials held a series of joint security meetings across the West Bank Sunday to gauge the implementation of last week's cease-fire accord, an Israeli army spokesman told AFP.
The meetings between commanders on the ground were held in the West Bank towns of Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqilya, Jericho and Ramallah, the spokesman said.
They were aimed at assessing the implementation of last Wednesday's truce deal signed by Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, he said.
He said similar talks were held in the Gaza Strip.
Under the terms of the accord signed at Gaza airport, the Israeli army was to ease its blockade of Palestinian territories in areas which were calm, starting with Jericho, southeast of Jerusalem -- JERUSALEM (AFP)
