  • Description

    THREE HUNDRED DEMONSTRATORS YESTERDAY (MONDAY, MARCH 30TH MARCHED THROUGHOUT THE STREETS OF AMMAN TO THE LEBANESE EMBASSY WHERE THEY STAGED A PROTEST AGAINST RECENT CLASHES IN LEBANON.

    FIGHTING BROKE OUT IN LEBANON ON TUESDAY (MARCH 24TH) BETWEEN PALESTINIAN COMMANDOS AND RIGHT-WING GROUPS OPPOSED TO THEM. THE FIGHTING CONTINUED FOR FIVE DAYS AND MORE THAN 20 PEOPLE DIED.

    AS THEY MARCHED THROUGH AMMAN THE DEMONSTRATORS SHOUTED SLOGANS AGAINST IMPERIALISM, ZIONISM AND THE LEBANESE GOVERNMENT. POLICE AND ARMED GUERILLAS ACCOMPANIED THE DEMONSTRATORS.

    THE GOVERNMENT WORKED DESPERATELY TO AVERT A MAJOR SHOWDOWN BETWEEN THE MOSLEM COMMANDOS AND THE PREDOMINANTLY CHRISTIAN GROUPS OPPOSED TO THEM. A GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN BLAMED THIRD PARTIES-WHICH HE DID NOT IDENTIFY-FOR STARTING THE TROUBLE.

    LATER, ROCKET AND BOMB ATTACKS WERE MADE AGAINST UNITED STATES PROPERTY IN BEIRUT, AND RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ATTACKS WAS CLAIMED BY A RADICAL COMMANDO ORGANISATION. THE COMMANDOS CLAIMED THE AMERICANS WERE PLOTTING AGAINST THEIR MOVEMENT.
