  • Description

    Palestinian Liberation Organisation chairman, Yasser Arafat condemned the proposed Sinai agreement between egypt and Israel during a gradation ceremony for girl commandos on Saturday, (30 August).

    "American plans for a settlement will never be allowed to succeed, "Mr. Arafat told the girls, who have been trained in the use of grenades, submachine guns and anti-tank weapons.

    "We will liberate Palestine with our bodies, blood and souls," he said.

    He said the agreement being negotiated through United States Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger, was in violation of collective Arab Decisions.

    Agreement would mean the disintegration of Arab Solidarity and silence towards it would be interpreted as acceptance of it, he said.

    Mr. Arafat was speaking at a commando training camp, where the graduation ceremony took place.

    The girls, whose ages range from 14 to 23 later showed their capabilities with an exhibition of live firing.

    Their group has been named Muntaha Hourani, after a girl killed by Israeli troops during an Arab demonstration in Israeli occupied territory.
