      Report: Abbas Rejects IDF Presence in Judea & Samaria


      Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas reportedly rejected the concept of any Israel Defense Force presence in Judea or Samaria, AFP news reported on Friday. Negotiations have been ongoing since the summer regarding a possible compromise between Israel and the PA leading to the creation of an independent Palestinian State. Israel may want to maintain a security presence in areas seen as hotbeds of terrorist activity, even if it agrees to remove civilian homes.
