  • Description

    In the Middle East, one hundred Palestinian leaders from the Occupied West Bank of Jordan, including several West Bank Mayors, have affirmed their support for the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO), and congratulated other Arab states which have rejected the Camp David agreements.

    SYNOPSIS: At a meeting in East Jerusalem on Sunday (1 October), the leaders rejected the idea of limited self-rule offered by Israel to West Bank residents. They described the autonomy plan proposed in the Camp David accords between Israel and Egypt as "totally unacceptable", and said they were sending messages to congratulate Arab states opposed to the agreements. The leaders declared the PLO was the only representative of the Palestinians.

    Palestinian guerrilla organisations have pledged to intensify their activity in Israel to show their disapproval of the agreements. After the meeting came comments from two West Bank Mayors, Karim Khalif of Ramallah, and the Mayor of Haloul, Mohammed Mulhem. First, Karim Khalif.
