The situation remains tense throughout
the West Bank with the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) still partially
in Hebron, and conducting incursions and search campaigns in the villages
of Dura, Sair, Al-Shuyukh, Kurf Rai and Jayyous.
In Bethlehem, approximately 26 people
left the Church of the Nativity, the biggest group to leave since the confrontation
began on March 2, following continuing negotiations between Israeli and
Palestinian representatives. In Hebron, armored tanks and vehicles
have begun withdrawing from the city.
