ISRAELI CLAIMS OF MILITARY WITHDRAWAL FROM WEST BANK A FABRICATION
Report, PCHR, 8 January 2005

Despite claims by the Israeli military, Palestinian human rights experts in the West Bank report that Israeli occupation forces have continued positioning forces at stable military checkpoints erected at the entrances to the major towns, and have also erected a number of sudden military checkpoints at the main crossroads on the eve of the Palestinian presidential election. In Nablus, Israeli forces maintained their presence at Beit Eiba checkpoint, Hawara and Za’tara and Beit Furik. They also continued to close several roads. Israeli forces remained also in other areas of the West Bank.
