WASHINGTON — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday vaguely hinted at the
possibility of a unilateral Israeli withdrawal from parts of the West Bank in the future, if certain conditions were met.
Speaking at a left-leaning think tank, he initially dismissed the idea of an
Israeli unilateral withdrawal in the absence of a two-state deal with the Palestinians to prevent Israel from becoming a bi-national state, citing security concerns. But later on, he said such a
demarche was “possible” if it had the international community’s backing and fully satisfied Israel’s security concerns.
