  • Description

    BUSINESS LIFE HALTED IN ARAB PARS OF JERUSALEM TODAY (WEDNESDAY) AS THE INHABITANTS -- IN CONCERT WITH ARABS THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST -- MARKED THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF THE LIGHTING SIX-DAY MIDDLE EAST WAR A YEAR AGO TODAY.

    JERUSALEM'S ARABS WENT ON GENERAL STRIKE IN MOURNING FOR THOSE WHO DIED IN JUNE LAST YEAR AND IN PROTEST AGAINST THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION. SOME GATHERED AT A MEMORIAL WHICH HAD BEEN SET UP IN MEMORY OF ARABS KILLED IN THE FIGHTING.

    A MEMORIAL TO ISRAELI WAR DEAD WAS DISCOVERED TO HAVE BEEN DAMAGED.

    ALTHOUGH THE STRIKE WAS COMPLETE IN ARAB PARTS OF JERUSALEM IT APPEARED TO BE ONLY PARTIAL IN OTHER AREAS OCCUPIED BY ISRAEL IN LAST JUNE'S WAR. IN RAMALLAH ON THE WEST BANK OF THE JORDAN SHOPS WERE OPEN BUT THERE WERE FEW VISITORS AND NO INCIDENTS.

    IN JERUSALEM PROCESSIONS OF MOURNERS, UNDER HEAVY POLICE GUARD MADE THEIR WAY TO MOSLEM CEMETERIES TO HONOUR THOSE WHO DIED A YEAR AGO CARRYING WREATHS BEARING INSCRIPTIONS FROM THE KORAN. A BRIEF SCUFFLE BROKE OUT AT ONE STAGE WHEN POLICE PREVENTED GROUPS OF ARAB YOUTHS FROM INFILTRATING THE PROCESSIONS.
