  • Description

    Mr. Nayef Hawatmeh, leader of the Popular Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, commented at a Press Conference in Amman Wednesday (June 17) about the origins of the previous fighting between Palestinian guerrillas and the troops of King Hussein's Jordan regime.

    Mr. Hawatmeh took the opportunity at the Press Conference to warn that a new crisis could flare up within a fortnight, if demands made by the commandos were not met.

    Demands listed the previous day by the Popular Democratic front included the disbandment of special security units, the purging from the Government of so-called reactionary elements, and the trial of those responsible for the recent events in which 1,000 persons were reported dead or wounded in Amman.

    King Hussein was due to speak at a Press Conference in Amman today (June 17). The previous week in a message to the Jordanian Nation, he declared he was not prepared make more compromises to the Palestinian Guerillas.
