2. Main elements
i. Gaza Strip:
Israel will evacuate the Gaza Strip, including all existing Israeli towns and villages, and will redeploy outside the Strip. This will not include military deployment in the area of the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt ("the Philadelphi Route") as detailed below. Upon completion of this process, there shall no longer be any permanent presence of Israeli security forces or Israeli civilians in the areas of Gaza Strip territory which have been evacuated. As a result, there will be no basis for claiming that the Gaza Strip is occupied territory.
ii. West Bank:
Israel will evacuate an Area in the Northern Samaria Area (see Map), including 4 villages and all military installations, and will redeploy outside the vacated area.
Upon completion of this process, there shall no longer be any permanent presence of Israeli security forces or Israeli civilians in the Northern Samaria Area.
The move will enable territorial contiguity for Palestinians in the Northern Samaria Area.
Israel will improve the transportation infrastructure in the West Bank in order to facilitate the contiguity of Palestinian transportation. The process will facilitate Palestinian economic and commercial activity in the West Bank.
The Security fence: Israel will continue to build the security fence, in accordance with the relavent decisions of the government. The route will take into account humanitarian considerations.
3. Security situation following the disengagement
i. The Gaza Strip:
Israel will guard and monitor the external land perimeter of the Gaza Strip, will continue to maintain exclusive authority in Gaza air space, and will continue to exercise security activity in the sea off the coast of the Gaza Strip.
The Gaza Strip shall be demilitarized and shall be devoid of weaponry, the presence of which does not accord with the Israeli-Palestinian agreements.
Israel reserves its inherent right of self defense, both preventive and reactive, including where necessary the use of force, in respect of threats emanating from the Gaza Strip.
ii. The West Bank:
Upon completion of the evacuation of the Northern Samaria Area, no permanent Israeli military presence will remain in this area.
Israel reserves its inherent right of self defense, both preventive and reactive, including where necessary the use of force, in respect of threats emanating from the Northern Samaria Area.
In other areas of the West Bank, current security activity will continue. However, as circumstances permit, Israel will consider reducing such activity in Palestinian cities.
Israel will work to reduce the number of internal checkpoints throughout the West Bank.
4. Military Installations and Infrastructure in the Gaza Strip and Northern Samaria
In general, these will be dismantled and removed, with the exception of those which Israel decides to leave and transfer to another party.
5. Security assistance to the Palestinians
Israel agrees that by coordination with it, advice, assistance and training will be provided to the Palestinian security forces for the implementation of their obligations to combat terrorism and maintain public order, by American, British, Egyptian, Jordanian or other experts, as agreed with Israel. No foreign security presence may enter the Gaza Strip or the West Bank without being coordinated with and approved by Israel.
6. The border area between the Gaza Strip and Egypt (Philadelphi Route)
Initially, Israel will continue to maintain a military presence along the border between the Gaza Strip and Egypt (Philadelphi route). This presence is an essential security requirement. At certain locations security considerations may require some widening of the area in which the military activity is conducted.
Subsequently, the evacuation of this area will be considered. Evacuation of the area will be dependent, inter alia, on the security situation and the extent of cooperation with Egypt in establishing a reliable alternative arrangement.
If and when conditions permit the evacuation of this area, Israel will be willing to consider the possibility of the establishment of a seaport and airport in the Gaza Strip, in accordance with arrangements to be agreed with Israel.
