In some of their toughest negotiations yet, Israel is telling the Palestine Liberation Organization to choose between national elections that would install the first democratically chosen Palestinian government and the early withdrawal of Israeli troops from West Bank towns and villages. "We need the elections for our political credibility, but how much credibility will we have if Israeli soldiers are still present and continuing their occupation--but by our agreement?"

Israel moved tank and infantry battalions near the West Bank towns of Bethlehem and Jenin early today, its largest West Bank troop movement in 10 months of fighting with the Palestinians. The beefing-up of forces came after a day of escalation that saw Israel kill two Islamic militants and two others in a helicopter gunship attack and the Palestinians for the first time fire mortar shells in the West Bank. Two shells fired from Beit Jala fell near the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo.
