Saturday, February 26, 2005 |

Originally, the evacuation was to last 12 weeks, but the government recently cut it to eight weeks. Now, Mofaz has told military and police planners to shorten the timetable to just four weeks. Mofaz said eight weeks would give opponents of the pullout too much time to disrupt it and to bring in reinforcements.
