12 African States Repudiate Stand
Against Israel Reported at Parley
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Foreign Minister Abba Eban informed the
cabinet Sunday that 12 African governments had publicly dissociated
themselves from a resolution attributed to them by the Organization
for African Unity which demanded unconditional Israeli withdrawal
from occupied Arab territories.
Eban said that the officially published resolutions adopted by the
Organization for African Unity which just ended a conference in
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, contained no reference to Israel or the Middle
East. The organization's secretary had given a statement to the press
implying that the African foreign ministers who attended the confer-
ence had adopted a resolution backing Egypt's demands for uncondi-
tional Israeli withdrawal. There are 36 nations represented in the OAU.

Israel Gives Recognition
to Isolated Negev Outpost
JERUSALEM (JTA) — A group
of tenacious American volunteers
and Israeli halutzim who clung to
their tiny outpost of Hatzeva in
the wilds of the Nege despite of-
ficial disapproval, have finally won
settlement status for the place.
Hatzeva also known as Ein Hus-
sub, was officially recognized as a
settlement by the government and
the Jewish Agency when it became
clear that the settlers would not
leave as they had been requested
Hatzeva is located in the eastern
extremity of the Negev, in the
wilderness country south of the
Dead Sea. It is probably the most
isolated inhabited spot in Israel.
