The World

February 13, 1986

Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres outlined to Parliament a plan to reduce Israeli control over the day-to-day life of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip. Peres said his proposal, first aired last weekend, would delegate more powers to the 1.3 million inhabitants of the two territories in the categories of local government, health, education, commerce and tourism. The plan would take effect, he said, only after its approval by residents of the territories, where reaction has been mixed. Peres assured his audience that Israel does not plan to withdraw troops from the areas it captured during the 1967 war.
