The US security coordinator in the Palestinian territories toured the West Bank's most chaotic city Thursday, praising Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's attempts to restore order there as a first step toward cementing his rule in the West Bank. Some 3,000 Palestinian police have been deployed in Nablus, and 500 more are to arrive in coming days, Palestinian officials said. Dayton said he was told the law-and-order campaign in Nablus is to be the test for the rest of the West Bank. The US coordinator, Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton, met Thursday with Palestinian security chiefs in Nablus, a terrorist stronghold. "I'm here to show American support for this operation," Dayton told reporters. "I work very carefully with the Palestinian security forces, and I must tell you that I have very high regard for the Palestinian security forces."
