    Background: Hundreds of women gathered in the University auditorium in Damascus on Saturday (19 April) for a rally in support of Arab women living in Israeli occupied territories.

    The meeting was addressed by Mr. Abdul Mohsen Abu Maizar, an official of the Palestine Liberation Organisation. During his speech he attacked the Falangist Party in the Lebanon. Talking about their recent clashes with the PLO in Beirut, he said the Falangists were retaliating on behalf of the Israelis for the Sevoy raid carried out by the PLO last year.

    The rally in support of the Arab women was attended by delegates from other countries and was part of Syrian celebrations of International Women's Year.
