a peaceful settlement
with Israel were reported
Wednesday to have been
defeated by rival Pales-

of fighting in Nabatiye, a
Lebanese town nine miles
from Israel.
According to police
sources, all offices there
of the so-called "rejection
front" have been oc-

Fatah and- its allies, the
Democratic Front for the
Liberation of Palestine
and the Syrian-backed As
The action came after
two days of street fight-

The fighting in Nabatiye


was said to have resulted
from a decision by Al.
Fatah's leadership to deal
firmly with elements dis-
rupting Palestinian unity.
The decision was made
after clashes between the
"rejectionists" and .Syrian
troops around Palestinian
camps near Beirut last
Sunday, Syrian opposi-
tion stalled the chances of
sending UN forces to help
stop the fighting.
Lebanese authorities
were reported to have fa-
vored expanding from 40
to 400 the UN observers

line with Israel and using
this force as a cover for

chain of .military agricul-
tural settlements in the
northeast corner of the
Sinai have recently been
linked to Israel's national
water supply network.
The entire region is de-
signed as a security belt
to prevent enemy ad-
vancement through the
desert to the Gaza strip.

ganization, which spon-
sors land settlement, has
requested Israeli gov-
ernment authorization

Most Technical Sinai Violations
Made by Israel, Congress Told

rael committed most of
the 28 technical viola-

Sinai buffer zone, the di-
rector of the U.S. Sinai
support mission told Con-
gress recently.
"Most of the violations
we recorded were Israeli

tos told a House interna-

Kontos said the early

warning system, estab-
lished to ensure Israel
and Egyptian compliance
with the Sinai II accord,
has been activated 28
times. "Of the 28 viola-
tions, 18 have been air-
craft overflights, eight
were surface violations,
and two concerned disal-
lowed weapons," Kontos
Kontos said both Israel
and Egypt violated the
weapons limitations once.
But both countries re-
moved the weapons
promptly, he said. Kontos
said he did not have a
specific breakdown of Is-
rael or Egyptian viola-
tions, but would provide it
for the record later.
