When the department
indicated that it was
communicating directly
with the PLO, Israeli
Embassy press counsel-

the Embassy had raised
the question of U.S. con-
tact with the PLO and
added: "We have expres-
sed our sorrow that it was
found necessary because
of the situation for
America to deal directly
with the PLO. At the
same time we have been
assured that there is no
change in U.S. policy to-
ward the PLO."
Speculation varied on

Beirut for the "safe and

The U.S. State De-

with "all parties" in-

Lebanon to arrange the
evacuation which was
carried out a week after it

Reports Claim That Syria Is Annexing Parts of Lebanon

tioned State Department
spokesman Frederick
Brown on why the evacua-
tion that had been
scheduled for last Tuesday
continued to be delayed
and the report by colum-
nists Rowland Evans and
Robert Novak that the
PLO "is under high-level
suspicion here of fabricat-
ing its warning that it
could not guarantee safe
evacuation this week of
U.S. diplomats from
Beirut in order to turn
them into virtual hos-
tages."

The columnists said
that PLO Chief Yassir
Arafat wants "serious
U.S. pressure on Syrian
President Hafez Assad to
withdraw from Lebanon
leaving the PLO intact to
negotiate a political set-
tlement with other major
factions in the civil war."

Meanwhile, Israeli offi-
cials are reacting cauti-
ously to reports from
Lebanon and Syria that
the PLO and Syria have
reached agreement over
the Lebanese crisis.

According to these re-
ports, the PLO, appa-
rently having been badly
mauled in the fighting,
and fearing further Sy-
rian pressure, has agreed
to the reinstatement.of a
sovereign Lebanese gov-
ernment under Sarkiss
(the newly elected presi-
dent) and has agreed too
to abide by the "Cairo Ag-
reement" — which limits
PLO freedom of armed
movement inside Leba-
non.

The new agreement
also reportedly limits the
PLO to camps in the
northeastern part of
Lebanon, along the Sy-
rian border.

But officials were not
prepared Wednesday to
hail the reported agree-
ment as necessarily
marking the end of the
16-month bloodbath in
Lebanon.

They noted that the ag-
reement, though exten-
sively reported in Arab
media, had not been offi-
cially announced nor had
any joint Syrian-PLO
statement been issued, as
would. normally be ex-
pected.

Increased Benefits
for WWII Victims

TEL AVIV, (JTA) — A
report in the Middle East
Intelligence Survey and
information from other
sources appeared Sunday
to confirm that Syria is
actively engaged in an-
nexing parts of Lebanon.
Concern over such a move
by Syria was voiced by
Defense Minister Shimon
Peres.
But Premier Yitzhak
Rabin, addressing volun-
teers and settlers in sev-
eral towns and kibbutzim
in Galilee, strongly im-
plied that Syrian moves
in Lebanon coincided
with Israel's interests at
the moment and that Is-
raeli intervention was
unwarranted.
The Syrian army is en-
gaged in a battle with the
PLO forces and the ex-
treme leftists in Leba-
non, because those ele-
ments reject any logical
political settlement of the
Lebanese civil war,
Rabin said. As long as the
Syrian army or any other
army does not constitute
any threat to Israel "I
don't see any reason why
Israel should find itself
involved in a war that
would only add death and
destruction," the Pre-
mier declared.
He said Israel's in-
volvement in Lebanon
consisted only of provid-
ing medical aid and food
for Lebanese refugees
seeking such aid, regard-
less of whether they are
Christians or Moslems.
According to Rabin, lef-
tists and Moslem ele-
ments, some of them de-
serters from the Lebanese
army, have tried to contact
Israel through the United
Nations to reactivate the
Mixed Armistice Commis-
sion.
He saw that as an indi-
cation that the Arabs in
southern Lebanon are
unwilling to become in-
volved in any clash with
Israel and therefore
southern Lebanon has
been relatively quiet

the region require per-
mission from the Syrian
authorities, the reports
said. According to one re-
port, the Syrians have
removed the old border
signs indicating that they
now regard that region of
Lebanon to be part of
Syria.
