  • Description

    Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat on Thursday (October 15) called on his followers to exercise restraint and discipline to preserve the ceasefire agreement he reached with Jordan's King Hussein. He was speaking to a large crowd gathered round a monument to last month's civil war victims in the Wahadat refugee camp, just outside Amman.

    But the guerrilla leader's speech also contained a warning which prefigured reports of renewed fighting in Jordan this weekend. He declared that the Palestinians must be ready to fight again if the Jordan Government forces the issue.

    The austere concrete was memorial in Wahadat camp had appeared almost overnight. It marks the site of a mass grave where, the guerrillas say, several hundred Palestinians were buried during the September civil war.
