Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yuval Diskin told the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Tuesday that he was opposed to IDF plans to open Hebron's Zion Route to Palestinian traffic, Army Radio reported. The route was set to be opened for Palestinians on Wednesday for the first time in 15 years following a commitment made by the army to the High Court of Justice. However, it was postponed Tuesday until an unspecified date. Right-wing parties have warned that the move is dangerous and will lead to terror attacks.
