  • Description

    Palestinian refugees in a camp near Amman, the Jordanian capital, have been voicing their opposition to the Camp David agreements that Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar reached last week.

    SYNOPSIS: This the Schneller refugee camp, which is seven kilometres (4.3 miles) from Amman, and has a population of thirty six thousand. Many of its younger inhabitants were born here, and have never known nay other kind of life.

    Jordan formally annexed the West Bank of the River Jordan in 1950, but lost all this territory to Israel in the 1967 war. Even without the West Bank, a large number of Jordan's settled population are Palestinian refugees.

    King Hussein and the Jordanian cabinet on Tuesday (19 September) issued a carefully non-committal statement on the Camp David accords.

    But Mr. Atta Disi, a construction controller at this camp, opposed the Israeli-Egyptian agreements.

    Mr. Mohammed el Arraj, a merchant, also explained why he did not support the accords.
