Israel Completes Evacuation of Settlements
Israel completed its evacuation of the settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, despite massive protests.
Israel on Tuesday completed the evacuation of Jewish settlers from 25 settlements in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, wrapping up Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s historic plan to “disengage” from the Palestinians.
The evacuation was completed in just a week, ending with the removal of settlers from two West Bank strongholds, Sanur and Homesh, said an army spokeswoman, Capt. Yael Hartman.
The ball is definitely in the Palestinians’ court at this point.
