A new plan for a train line linking central Israel to settlements deep in the West Bank drew criticism Friday from Palestinians already angry over Israel's refusal to meet their demand for a full halt to settlement construction.

The line is supposed to run from the suburbs of Tel Aviv to the northern West Bank — an area which Palestinians want as part of their future state.

The new project comes as relations between the Israeli and Palestinian governments are growing more sour, with the sides unable to agree even on the conditions that would allow them to resume talking to each other.
