Officials said the administration of President Barack Obama has submitted a multi-stage security plan that would give the Palestinians control over the entire West Bank.

The plan was formally relayed to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Dec. 5 during the visit of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry demanded an immediate discussion of the plan, authored by U.S. security coordinator Gen. John Allen.
