      An Israeli -Egyptian Principle Agreement over Philadelphia Route

      http://www.ipc.gov.ps/ipc_new/english/details.asp?name=6501

      PALESTINE, August2, 2005 (IPC+Agencies) --- Israel and Egypt singed in
      principle an official agreement to deploy 750 Egyptian troops along the
      Philadelphia border route after the Israeli withdrawal.

      The agreement was reached during a meeting between Maj. General Amos
      Gilad, a senior official at the Israeli Foreign Ministry, and head of
      the Egyptian intelligence, Omar Suleiman.

      The details of the agreement will be finalized in the coming weeks
      during the meeting of the military security committee

      Abu al-Gheit met with Jebriel Rajoub, P.A National Security Advisor, on
      Monday at night in Cairo, and discussed issues regarding the Israeli
      withdrawal from Gaza, the Egyptian daily AL Ahram reported.

      An Egyptian diplomatic source stated that Abu al-Gheit asserted that the
      Palestinian factions should be united and committed to the Cairo
      agreement in order to achieve full control over the Gaza Strip following
      the Israeli withdrawal

      Rajoub stated that the P.A is conducting utmost efforts in order to make
      this withdrawal, from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank, the
      starting point of ending the occupation and establishing the Palestinian
      independent state.

      Egypt will dispatch another specialized team to Gaza in order to assist
      the Palestinian National Authority in reconstructing and reforming its
      civil and security devices in order to control the situation in the
      evacuated areas.

      Earlier, Sharon said that he will not pullout the troops from the
      Philadelphia route along the borders of Gaza with Egypt but if the later
      assume the security responsibilities in the area.

      The Palestinians are fully aware that the Israeli pullout from Gaza will
      not be fully if Israel retains its troops along the route with Egypt,
      the only border artillery of the Gaza Strip connected with an Arab
      neighboring state.

      For a long time, Israel claimed that the weapon smuggling through the
      Philadelphia route is posing a strategic risk, allegedly saying that it
      will enable the Palestinians to obtain anti-air craft missiles.
