The newspaper said Israel would "suggest to the Palestinians to conduct negotiations for adequate territorial compensation from Israel's sovereign territory, in exchange for settlement blocs amounting to about five percent of the West Bank's area."

Israel is also examining various options of exchanging settlement blocs with Arab community blocs within Israel, in agreement with the residents, it said.
