  • Description

    The Israeli Military Command have been taking tough measures to quell now stirrings of Arab unrest in the northern part of the occupied West Bank following the October War.

    Last week the occupation authorities blew up five houses in a small village near Jenin after arresting four of their owners on suspicion of guerrilla activities.

    It was the first such reprisal for two years and came after a grenade explosion in Jerusalem old city.

    On Thursday (December 1) there was a strong Israeli military presence in the village.

    The village of Nablus was put under a curfew after the Israeli Military Governor was hurt by a grenade thrown at his car as he passed through the village. As well as foot patrols, armoured jeeps drive regularly through the market.

    And in Hebron an explosion damaged a shop on Wednesday (December 12) injuring several people.

    The fate of the West Bank has become a major election issue in Israel. A recent public opinion poll, for the first time showed a majority of Israelis would be prepared to give it up.

    Last Friday eight men were expelled from the area to Jordan. They included Mr. Abdul Gawad, the Mayor of El Bireh, the Muslim twin town of Christian Ramallah, a few miles north Jerusalem.

    Another of the men was a member of the Supreme Muslim Council which recently passed a resolution of support for the Arab Summit Conference in Algiers which declared the Palestine Liberation to be the sole representative of the Palestinian people.
