Tenet Cease-Fire Plan (2001)

An informal plan drafted by US Director of Central Intelligence George J. Tenet, dated 10 June 2001, with the purpose of achieving a ceasefire in the Second Intifada and resuming Israeli-Palestinian security cooperation. It was based on commitments made during the 2000 Sharm el-Sheikh Summit and contained in the 2001 Mitchell Report. Alongside measures to contain violence, it also included a Palestinian commitment to combat anti-Israeli incitement, and an Israeli commitment for redeployment and the release of uninvolved prisoners. Implementation of the plan was derailed by the Israeli demand for a complete cessation of Palestinian attacks for one week, which was not accomplished.
