Peres, Ze'evi Say Agreement to be Signed Thursday.

Israel Faxx Staff Report

Channel Two Television in Jerusalem reported it was told by Regional Cooperation Minister Shimon Peres, a former prime minister, that there was a good possibility that a peace agreement could be signed on Thursday. He said that if both sides sit down and hold serious discussions, there is a good chance that an agreement can be reached.

Israel Radio reported that a "credible source" told Knesset member Rehavam Ze'evi that an agreement would be signed between Israel and the Palestinians on Thursday.

Ha'aretz reported Tuesday that, according to the agreement, 250,000 Palestinians will be allowed to return to Israel over a period of five years to be reunited with their families. Ze'evi said that Israel had agreed to transfer east Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, to Palestinian control.
