Report; PM Ready to Give Up 90% of Judea and Samaria

The London-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported Friday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu plans on presenting the Palestinian Authority (PA) "a new declaration of principles" which includes a commitment to withdraw from 90% of Judea and Samaria and uproot more than 50,000 Jewish residents.

The offer does not include eastern Jerusalem. The German news agency Deutsche Presse Agentur cited a PA official, who indicated the details of such a launch would be decided next week.

Sources in the Prime Minister's Office have denied the Al-Hayat report.
