El Fatah Reported Torn by Dissension

TEL • AVIV (JTA)—Arab quar-
ters report serious dissension in
the ranks of El Fatah. The Leb-
anese newspaper Al Haivat re-
ported on a meeting of El Fatah's
"Revolutionary Council" at which
the guerrilla chief, Yassir Arafat,
showed up 24 hours late and barely
managed to reverse an earlier vote
of no confidence in himself and
the El Fatah leadership.
Six Arab terrorists were killed
Feb. 9 in a clash with an Israeli
patrol near Kuneitra in the Go-
lan Heights, less than a mile in-
side Israeli-held territory. The
band was intercepted by the Is-
raeli unit when it tried to cross
the demarcation line. There were
no Israeli casualties.
Four terrorists from Lebanese
territory were killed in the en-
counter with an Israeli patrol in
the Upper Galilee. In addition,
two terrorists were killed north
of the Dead Sea. All were found


to be bearing weapons, ammuni-
tion and mines.
Meanwhile, security forces were
searching for the saboteurs who
forced Arab workers out of a bus
near Hebron and destroyed it by
Security forces have uncovered
two more terrorists bands—one at
El Arish in the northern Sinai
headed by two Egyptian intelli-
gence men and another in the Jeru-
salem area. The El Arish band was
charged with firing bazookas at the
Nebel Yam settlement, shelling the
military governor's house and
planting mines.
The four-man Jerusalem gang,
headed by 27-year-old El Fatah
trainee Said Eldado, admitted
throwing grenades at the Nablus
and Jaffa gates and at the British
Consulate and sabotaging an elec-
tric pylon.
Three members of a spy ring in
the service of El Fatah were sen-

tenced to jail. They were Ommar
Ibrahim Assoulin of East Jerusa-
lem, a part-time Journalist and en-
gineering student in Beirut, and
Seidan and Abou Khalil, Israeli
Arabs. They had been found early
last year in possession of military
Assoulin received 10 years, the
Khallls six years each. Aieording to
information from Amman, there
are only 5,000 guerrillas in Jordan,
compared with 20,000 before last
September's civil war.

One must be serious about some
thing if one wants to have any
amusement in life.
