Gaza, ALRAY - John Kerry's security proposals, including Israeli control of the future Palestinian state's border with Jordan, accept most of Israel's positions, Israeli military radio Tuesday reported.

Earlier this month Kerry presented to the Palestinian Authority and Israelis security “ideas” based on the work that a team of some 160 US officials drew up defining what it thought would be necessary for Israel’s security if a Palestinian state is created.

"The US is prepared to give (Israel) full control of the Jordan border, as well as the ability to spy and collect intelligence in the occupied West Bank," the radio said.

"Kerry also proposed that a massive fence be built along the length of the Jordan Valley, similar to the current West Bank separation wall, placing the proposed Palestinian state between the two fences," it added.  

"The proposal also allows for Israeli drones to fly over the occupied West Bank, collecting intelligence and spying on (terrorist) activities,"

According the security plan, Jordan border patrols will initially be carried out by Israeli occupation soldiers only, for the first few years, and will eventually be made cooperative with Palestinian security forces and Jordanian forces.

Recently, Abbas and the Arab League rejected the US plan, stating that here could be not one Israeli soldier in the territory of a future Palestinian state.

Jerusalem Post contributed to this report.
