The IDF and Police have completed their operation plan for the dismantlement and evacuation of the Gaza and northern West Bank settlements. The evacuation, which is codenamed "Tribe of Brothers," is scheduled to start in July, Israel Radio reported. The plan is that one Gaza settlement will be dismantled during the first stage with all necessary force and effort in order to evaluate the degree of the settlers’ opposition. The rest of the settlements in Gaza will be removed over the course of two months, with the northern West Bank settlements to be dismantled in September. More than 5,000 policemen and soldiers are to participate in the operation.
