Following the expected deployment of hundreds of Palestinian security forces in the West Bank city of Jenin, Palestinian forces will also move into Bethlehem and other major West Bank cities, Israeli security sources said on Wednesday.

Voice of Israel radio reported that Israeli security officials believe that the Palestinian Authority's (PA) officers have achieved relative success in restoring security in the cities of Nablus and Tulkarem, where they have already been allowed to resume control.

The Israeli military, the officials said, would be able to operate freely even in those areas where Palestinian police are supposedly in control.

Israeli occupation government defense minister, Ehud Barak, is scheduled to inform Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad of the decision to deploy 700 members of Palestinian security forces in Jenin in a meeting on Wednesday, Israeli media reported.
