JNS.org – Israeli has proposed the opening of a new 3G mobile phone network for Palestinians living in the disputed territories.

A spokesman in Israel’s Communications Ministry said that contingent on Palestinians meeting some Israeli conditions, the Jewish state will allocate more radio frequencies to the disputed territories. This will allow the Palestinian mobile operators Paltel and Wataniya to move from 2G to 3G network technology.

Palestinian Minister of Telecommunication Allam Mousa called the proposal a “breakthrough.”
