January 25, 2011 00:25

A new batch of "Palestine Papers" were released on Monday, revealing that then-foreign minister Tzipi Livni wanted to transfer some Israeli Arabs to a future Palestinian state in a land swap deal.

In a meeting with Palestinian Negotiator Ahmed Qurei, Livni recounts a visit to Wadi Ara, saying: "it can be part of the swaps."

Her advisor, Udi Dekel, then listed Israeli Arab villages that would be transferred to a future Palestinian state: Barka, Barta il Sharqiya, Barta il Garbiya, Betil and Beit Safafa.
